Important: Express support isn't implemented yet. This is my #1 priority after this documentation push.

For those wondering why it doesn't exist yet: the challenge is that serious caching is necessary for minification and require traversal. A simple "one function" approach would be pretty trivial. It is just getting support the command-line tool's file unification and minification that is hard.
