Allow the function called by Framebuffer:renderTo() to accept arguments

Basically, make this possible: framebuffer:renderTo(renderFunc, lines). I really miss this for the RichText library.

    It actually was in the first draft, it was scrapped later because it seemed unnecessary, what is the reason you can't just set the render target, call the func, and set it back?

    No reason, it's just less elegant.

    Btw, the thing I did now was making lines a module-wide local, which also isn't very clean.

    Perhaps other people disagree, but I still think having it accept other arguments is useful.

    Yeah, but not the most elegant solution. Although I might prefer it to local globals.

    Anyway, if you want to implement it, please do; if not, that's okay.
