Support for custom scalars

See original GitHub issue

GraphQL.g.cs(6110, 36): [CS0246] The type or namespace name ‘ObjectId’ could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

in schema it looks like:

scalar ObjectId

Does it support custom scalars? I’ve generated client from schema that uses Mongo ObjectId, and got this error

At the moment, it will fail. It is not bootstrapped correctly in the library. It is possible to define it as a custom scalar, but it would be much better to handle it as a system type.

I already started working on it and noticed that HotChocolate and System.Text.Json serialize System.TimeSpan in different formats. So, I plan to add a more robust way to tinker with JSON serialization in the library.
