Ability to skip google cloud storage web auth flow

When programmatically setting up google cloud storage config via rclone config create, sometimes its desirable to be able to create a basic config and rely on Application Default Credentials ( Google Cloud Storage ) behavior to handle the authentication. Currently this is not possible, config create command will always bring up the web flow when no other authentication options are provided.

A similar request was filed under bugs previously, where the work around is to create the config with fake authentication config and then manually removing it later. Cannot skip the web-based authorization flow in config of GCP

It would be great if a config key can be exposed to the create config cli command to be able to skip the web authentication when no other authentication is provided.

Best bet would be to log a feature request on github/submit a PR yourself.
