IMO the client should be kept in its own tree/repo and packaged for
publication on pip. I've taken this approach for 'git-pw' [1], and
will be updating that to support the REST API once it's done.

Speaking of git-pw, this is useful for git integration but I think
we'll still need a pwclient-like application for more "admin'y" stuff.
Do you think we should integrating REST API support into pwclient, or
should we create a whole new client (pwclient2?)?
