[keycloak-dev] generic cli sso utility

I've developed a small command line utility around Keycloak Installed.  
The idea is that this utility performs a login with keycloak to obtain 
an access token.  This utility saves the access and refresh token in a 
file (similar to how ssh does in .ssh). Then bash scripts can be used to 
export the access token as an environment variable so it can be used by 
other command line utilities.



Eventually I'm thinking of creating a text/plain protocol with Keycloak 
server so that launching a browser or cutting/pasting between the 
command line window and browser isn't a requirement. It woudl be a plain 
text challenge response protocol.  This would require a bit more work as 
it would require reworking all of our built in authenticators and 
required action plugins.
