Service tokens

Registered by Stuart McLaren on 2014-05-29

A new form of composite token auth.

A service token can be required in addition to a standard user token to allow them to perform
operations that they cannot typically do; and potentially operations that no holder
of just a standard token can do.

The typical use case is likely to be services assigning additional roles to users.
