Welll.. As I understand, Oauth is to allow external auth sources. (You need a third party oauth trusted authentication source, no?)
When I created this ticket, I was thinking of a native API key, that each user could generate and revoke for their own accounts, so they didn't have to bake their pw into scripts and what not... (Correct me if I am misunderstanding what you are proposing with Oauth).

- File api_token.png added
The way gitlab manages it would be ideal. Example api request:
That would list out all the projects which the user with that private token has access to.
