I want to have a variant of Resource that accepts middleware (authenticate & persistence keys) and validates incoming JSON according to a schema (schema key), in order to emulate some of the features of Percolator. This was approximately the minimum way I could see how to do that.

Emmanuel Gomez Extract route application into a method.
This allows subclasses to override how routes are applied to the parent
app. Which is useful if you want to, for example, attach a db connection
pooling middleware on specific resources (e.g., custom Resource
subclasses), or, say, an authentication middleware.
Emmanuel Gomez Extract route remapping into _updateBasePath method.
This is in the spirit of Tell, Don't Ask & command/query separation.
Emmanuel Gomez Fix resource test indentation.
The second half of the test file had an extra leading space on every
line. No longer.
Emmanuel Gomez Allow for configuring which Resource constructor to use.
Now override `app.resource.constructor` or pass `resourceConstructor` in
3rd arg to `app.resource`.
Emmanuel Gomez Oops. Unbreak tests. e7d6449
