Authentication

Defers to use API key first since it's simpler, but if you don't have an API key, you can supply a username and password.

Functions

Singular functions like betydb_trait accept an id and additional parameters, and return a list of variable outputs depending on the inputs.

However, plural functions like betydb_traits accept query parameters, but not ids, and always return a single data.frame.
