Deprecating GoogleEmail2

As I'm sure many readers are aware, Google+ is shutting down. This affects Yesod's authentication system. In particular, any users of the Yesod.Auth.GoogleEmail2 module will need to migrate.

Fortunately for all of us, Patrick Brisbin has written both the code for using Google Sign-in, but has also put together a great migration blog post. If you're affected, please check that out for a relatively painless migration.

Earlier today, I migrated in two commits: the first did all of the work, and the second made things more future-proof.

As you may be able to tell from the GoogleEmail2 module, this isn't the first time we've had to migrate between Google authentication APIs. Hopefully this one will stick.
