[ANeff] ER for: WebSocket's onClose receives connectionInfo arg so onOpen should too

cfwebsocket's onClose() currently receives the connectionInfo struct as its argument. The onOpen() does not.

This struct is already available on the WebSocket JavaScript object and should be passed to onOpen for consistency with onClose.

The doc says onOpen and onClose require no argument. This is still true. The argument would remain optional. For clarity, the doc should just say that onOpen and onClose receive a connectionInfo argument containing details of the WebSocket connection.

(Code attached. Code includes repro for #3342986.)

The following comments are in the code:

1) Regarding openConnection/closeConnection: Doc says closeConnection() returns true upon successful completion. Doc also says that authenticate/subscribe/publish/invokeAndPublish/getSubscriberCount/getSubscriptions/openConnection/isConnectionOpen/closeConnection/unsubscribe all return boolean. Thus, openConnection & closeConnection should return boolean on successful completion (instead of undefined).

2) Regarding onOpen/onClose: The connectionOptions struct is already available on the WebSocket object. So there is no reason to prevent onOpen() from receiving the same connectionOptions argument that onClose() currently receives. The connectionOptions argument should be added to onOpen().
