Put googlesheets4 into a de-authorized state. Instead of sending a token, googlesheets4 will send an API key. This can be used to access public resources for which no Google sign-in is required. This is handy for using googlesheets4 in a non-interactive setting to make requests that do not require a token. It will prevent the attempt to obtain a token interactively in the browser. The user can configure their own API key via gs4_auth_configure() and retrieve that key via gs4_api_key(). In the absence of a user-configured key, a built-in default key is used.
