Using the `modify_resolution` option, you can alter the Absinthe resolution.

`modify_resoltion` is an MFA that will be called with the resolution, the query, and the result of the action as the first three arguments. Must return a new absinthe resolution.

This can be used to implement things like setting cookies based on resource actions. A method of using resolution context

*Important* if you are modifying the context in a query, then you should also set `as_mutation?` to true and represent this in your graphql as a mutation. See `as_mutation?` for more.
