Part of the reason for moving keystonemiddleware out of keystonemiddleware
was to do the reverse, have a keystoneclient install NOT bring in
auth_token.  I doubt there will be anything other than servers that need
keystonemiddleware installed whereas quite a few clients will not want it
at all.

I'm on the fence about changing stable requirements...if we imagine
keystonemiddleware is not an OpenStack project this wouldn't be the first
time we've had to do that when things change out from under us.  But I hate
doing that to ourselves...
