Well, using [keystone_authtoken] usually a bad idea, that's why projects introduce
other sections, like [nova], [neutron], [service_user], etc...
Howerver it is very confusing for the user (why the hell one needs to configure the
same settings twice), but [keystone_authtoken] should be considered private for 
keystonemiddleware. The effects can be mitigated with a default value of 
auth_section in the new section, I think it would be wise to use this in the projects
(create a new section, like [service_user], and set CFG.service_user.auth_section=
keystone_authtoken by default, then you can use CFG.service_user.xxx values in
your code).

For an instant solution, you can use the following ugliness:
