Allow async customization of long polling request #801

LongPollingTransport defines an empty protected void customize(Request request) method, presumably so that subclasses can override it in order to customize the request before it's sent. Unfortunately, this method returns immediately so it can't be used to customize the request with the result of an asynchronous operation. For example:

protected void customize(Request request) {
final CompletionStage<String> authorization = getAuthorizationFromAsyncSource();
request.header(HttpHeader.AUTHORIZATION, "Bearer " + authorization.join()); // Need to block since the method is synchronous.

Adding an alternative that accepts a Promise<Request> parameter should fix this, since we could complete that Promise with the result of any callback.
