[Feature Request] GraphQL: get Gist by URL

Currently, if you know a gist’s URL, you must use the old v3 API to fetch its node_id before you can find it in the GraphQL api (unless I’m missing something). 

It looks like a natural way to address this problem would be to allow gists to be looked up via the top-level resource query.
