Force new token in Swift authentication

I'm evaluating keystone in order to check if it resolves an issue I have with Swift's tempauth. Basically I cannot request a new token for a user until the existing token has expired. This means that in a scenario where I'm constantly interacting with Swift I am bound to get a 401 error when the token I'm using expires. Since I cannot issue a retry, this is a problem for me since that request is lost. Does keystone have the same issue? Can I force the creation of new tokens? Is there another way to deal with this issue not involving retries?

Thanks.
