[Pulp-dev] Pulp 3: using JWT to request a JWT

Our MVP doc currently states "As an API user, I can authenticate any API
call (except to request a JWT) with a JWT. (not certain if this should be
the behavior) [in progress]"

The uncertainty was due to the "except to request a JWT" clause.

I propose that Pulp 3 should support requesting a new JWT by using an
existing JWT. Automated systems that integrate with Pulp would benefit from
being able to renew tokens using an existing token.

Enabling this feature with django-rest-framework-jwt requires also
selecting the maximum amount of time since original token was issued that
the token can be refreshed. The default is 7 days. Pulp users should be
able to supply this value. Thy should also be able to specify how long each
token is good for.

What do others think?
