Support custom lhttpc options & safer setup call #3

I wanted to use dinerl with the "regular" esl-lhttpc version, but ran into the problem that only ferd's fork supports the the {max_connections, n} option that was hardcoded in the request code of dinerl.

I suggest to offer a dinerl:setup/4 function that let's the user override the lhttpc options (I left the default options as is when using dinerl:setup/3). While working on the setup call, I also added some checks to make sure that setup only starts the periodic timer when the initial updata_data actually succeeds.

Please note: the clientarguments() returned by a successful call to setup will now contain an additional element with the lhttpc options. If changing the return signature is a problem for you, I can also make it match the original tuple.

I've merged the other one, I want a bit more time to figure this one out properly. Sorry for taking so long.

No worries. Let me know if you think something should be done differently...

Can this be merged so that Dinerl can be used with esl/lhttpc instead of ferd/lhttpc?


Yeah, I'll try to do this in the next few days.
