Allow RequestConfig and HttpClientContext to be injected #375

This allows the RequestConfig and HttpClientContext instances to be overridden.

It is done like so:

(client/request {:method :get
                 :url "http://localhost:18080/get"
                 :http-client-context my-http-client-context
                 :http-request-config my-request-config})

We thinks this allows for more flexibility. In our case, it helps us do some fancier things with proxies. We want to set an AuthCache on our HttpClientContext instance, which looks something like this:

;; Our code looks like this...
(defn additional-cljhttp-options [proxy-host proxy-port proxy-user proxy-pass]
  (let [host (HttpHost. proxy-host proxy-port "http")
        creds (doto (BasicCredentialsProvider.)
                (.setCredentials AuthScope/ANY (UsernamePasswordCredentials. proxy-user proxy-pass)))
        basic-scheme (doto (BasicScheme.)
                       (.processChallenge (BasicHeader. HttpHeaders/PROXY_AUTHENTICATE "Basic")))
        auth-cache (doto (BasicAuthCache.)
                     (.put host basic-scheme))
        context (doto (HttpClientContext/create)
                  (.setCredentialsProvider creds)
                  (.setAuthCache auth-cache))
        request-config (-> (RequestConfig/custom) (.setProxy host) (.build))]
    {:http-client-context context :http-request-config request-config}))

This seems like it would also help solve #307 and allow SOCKS authentication to be provided, and perhaps help with #225.

Feedback is welcome, especially on some of the naming and spying done in the new test.
