Actors and Anonymous Client Identifiers

Our clients often want to associate Advice API requests with a specific user. We've designed Taffrail's infrastructure with privacy at its center. None of the rules used in our Rules Engine need specific user information and, indeed, no Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

In support of our client's needs, we added a standard API input parameter for sending anonymized user identifiers to the Taffrail API. API consumers should use the actor param with whatever format identifier is desired (UUID, short ID, etc).
