(CkPython) PayPal -- Get an OAuth 2.0 Access Token

Demonstrates how to send a request to get a PayPal OAuth2 access token. Sends an HTTP request equivalent to the following:

curl https://api.sandbox.paypal.com/v1/oauth2/token \
  -H "Accept: application/json" \
  -H "Accept-Language: en_US" \
  -u "Client-Id:Secret" \
  -d "grant_type=client_credentials"
