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

I’m not sure I fully understand this last paragraph about setting a maximum
amount of time per token. Regardless, I would not add the ability to
request new JWT tokens using JWT authentication in the MVP unless it’s easy
to implement. I think we want that eventually but what we have today
supports most of what users want or need from JWT auth.
