This is causing a lot of small changes throughout the code base, just adding the new parameter to any lambda implementing the FunctionalInterface.

> 3. Adding another optional lambda which can override how pagination is handled. This gets access to the HttpResponse to extract any necessary data to generate an HttpRequest.Builder for accessing the next page.
