#' Modify a plotly object inside a shiny app
#'
#' @param outputId single-element character vector indicating the output ID
#'   map to modify (if invoked from a Shiny module, the namespace will be added
#'   automatically)
#' @param session the Shiny session object to which the map belongs; usually the
#'   default value will suffice.
#' @param deferUntilFlush indicates whether actions performed against this
#'   instance should be carried out right away, or whether they should be held
#'   until after the next time all of the outputs are updated.
