This is something I have been working on internally as well. I've been trying to find a way to make the changes to the python neutronclient in the least invasive way to support pluggable authentication. I would be happy to help review the changes you submit upstream if you have something already well-tested.

Yes I have a similar constraint with waiting for the move to OSC/SDK. Even if the support for auth was merged into OSC/SDK, it wouldn't work with existing scripts and (more importantly) existing Icehouse/Juno Nova deployments that use the neutron client for the notifications to Neutron.
