Skeleton to use Dundas Rest API, with guaranteed log out.

Using __new__ + contextlib.closing() is awesome.
DundasSession can now be used within a context manager, meaning that whatever happens, its close() method
will be called (thus logging out). No need to call logout() explicitely!
Just using __del__ is not guaranteed to work because when __del__ is called, you do not know which objects
are already destroyed, and the session object might well be dead.
