[S] Standalone Gatekeeper with Resource API

Description (last modified by pjkersha) (diff)

The Gatekeeper is currently integrated into the Pylons NDG Browse framework. It needs to be refactored into a separate package.

It also needs a resource API. This provides an interface to map resource ID -> resource attributes (roles) controlling access to it. Data providers will potentially each have a different mechanism to relate the two. One example would be a database interface with tables to store the mapping information. Data providers can apply their own plugin tailored to their needs.
