[keycloak-dev] Notify clients on client configuration changes in Keycloak

I'm not keen on that as it wouldn't be standards compliant. Could also
require a lot of messages to a lot of clients when roles are modified.

I think it can just be handled on the client side. If it gets a 403, get a
new token and try again.
