Implement a uniform and consistent cli to be used by all SWH packages

This generic swh cli should be done so that is minimal dependency installed especially for "pure client" commands (e.g. swh.deposit's deposit or swh.model's identify tools).

A possible way of doing such a thing is to have a master swh command declared in this package as the main entry point: the swh command group (using click) which defines a few very command command line options (like --log-level), and a mechanism to load installed SWH cli plugins via setuptools' pkg_resources

This also requires we can install only a very light base version of swh.core (typically without db or aiohttp/flask dependencies).
