#721: Allow WordPress.org to act as a oAuth Provider

 I'd like to propose that I be able to authenticate on another site using
 my WordPress.org account. Let me explain two use cases:

 Use Case 1: To enable allowing plugin/ theme ratings from the WordPress
 If we could remote login to WordPress.org from our own WordPress admin,
 then it would make sense to add an endpoint to the WordPress.org API to
 set a rating, that could be POSTed to from the plugin & theme admin pages
 in WordPress.

 Use Case 2: Improve wpackagist:
 I want to write a fork of wpackagist.org (well really I want @nikv to do
 it) where I can login and set an official GitHub repo for my plugin. That
 way in a composer.json file a user can specify the development version of
 my plugin. The issue is how do I make it so only an admin of that plugin
 can make that determination? I can check their WordPress.org username
 against the https://api.wordpress.org/plugins/info/1.0/{slug}.json
 endpoint of the WordPress.org API, but only once I've verified they really
 are that user, which would require authenticating against WordPress.org
