running the formful server example in node.js version 0.6.7 results in the following error:

$ node formful/examples/server.js

        throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'existsSync'

It looks like fs.existsSync wasn't available in Node.js 0.6.x. However, Formful's package file lists the compatible Node.js versions as 0.6.x.

I'm guessing the package.json file should be updated to read as follows:

  "node": "*"
