[keycloak-user] export of realm json

I'm actually starting on the design and implementation of this right 
now.  It's import/export from the admin console.  It will also have the 
ability to import/export partial pieces of a realm such as just users.

Thanks for the comments so far on this thread.  They have been very helpful.

We will keep the idea that no secrets should ever be exported from admin 
console.  I'm not sure that having a flag for it in keycloak-server.json 
helps.  To edit keycloak-server.json, you need access to the server, in 
which case you might as well do the current import/export.

So what do you do after you import a user with no credentials? Some ideas:
* The administrator can reset the password manually.
* The user can do password recovery (if enabled)

An other ideas?
