For things in the library level of a client please consider using
keystoneclient's fairly new session layer as the basis of your HTTP layer.
 That will also give you access to the new style auth plugins, assuming you
want to do Keystone auth with this client.

I'm not sure if Jamie has any examples of using this without leaning on the
backward-compatibility bits that the existing clients need.

The Python SDK is being built on a similar Session layer (without the
backeard compat bits).
