[keycloak-dev] Change the binding name in ScriptBasedAuthenticator?

Hi Thomas and all,

In 3.2 we did some refactoring and authenticators are now using 
authenticationSession instead of ClientSession. I see if we should do 
something for the ScriptBasedAuthenticator as it;s still using 
"clientSession" as binding where it puts authentication session. I can 
see the possibilities:

1) Keep the binding name "clientSession" for backwards compatibility
2) Change the binding name. Probably to "authenticationSession" ? It 
would need to be documented in the migration guide.

My vote is to rather go with 2 as people will likely need to refactor 
their scripts anyway. Some method signatures are same for authentication 
session like was for client session, but not all. WDYT? Other idea?
