AuthState object manages an authorization state, typically on behalf of
a client package that makes requests to a Google API.
The How to use gargle for auth in a client package
vignette describes a design for wrapper packages that relies on an
object. This state can then be incorporated into the package's requests for
tokens and can control the inclusion of tokens in requests to the target API.
api_key is the simplest way to associate a request with a specific
Google Cloud Platform project.
A few calls to certain APIs, e.g. reading a public Sheet, can succeed
with an API key, but this is the exception.

This is used in the OAuth flow, in which an authenticated user authorizes
the app to access or manipulate data on their behalf.
auth_active reflects whether outgoing requests will be authorized by an
authenticated user or are unauthorized requests for public resources.
These two states correspond to sending a request with a token versus an
API key, respectively.
cred is where the current token is cached within a session, once one
has been fetched. It is generally assumed to be an instance of
httr::Token2.0 (or a subclass thereof), probably
