Enable Alluxio client impersonation

Description

The Alluxio client can only connect and authenticate with the Alluxio servers as a configured user. However, it may be useful for the Alluxio client to connect as a particular user, but impersonate a separate user. HDFS has a similar feature (proxy user). This ticket would be to implement Alluxio client impersonation to enable this use case.
