Add `createConnection` option for http or https requests

See original GitHub issue

Hi, I need a possibility of using createConnection option in the http/https request:

createConnection <Function> A function that produces a socket/stream to use for the request when the agent option is not used. This can be used to avoid creating a custom Agent class just to override the default createConnection function. See agent.createConnection() for more details. Any Duplex stream is a valid return value.

You can read more info about this function in the Node.js documentation:

NOTE: The createConnection of globalAgent isn’t suitable for me because I use other connections

P.S. Thanks for your work and the best library for EventSource.

This would be extremely helpful as there doesn’t currently seem to be a way to use UNIX domain sockets with this library.

Can we get a ruling on this?
