Use istanbul test coverage on koa

Recently, I wrote some koa middlewares: koa-gzip, koa-fresh, and I want to do test coverage with my favorite module: blanket.

But blanket broken #393

$ m cov

            throw e;
Error: Line 27: Unexpected token *
    at throwError (/Users/mk2/git/koa-gzip/node_modules/blanket/node_modules/esprima/esprima.js:1156:21)
    at throwUnexpected (/Users/mk2/git/koa-gzip/node_modules/blanket/node_modules/esprima/esprima.js:1213:9)

Is esprima not work?

First, I think esprima not support es6. But I search on github found #87 it's already support es6 now.

istanbul I found

I search 'coverage' on npm, istanbul just come out.

There are some articles about makr istanbul work with mocha:

Change blanket to istanbul

All diffs: koa-gzip#9af6

package.json: MUST use istanbul harmony branch

istanbul is awesome! I run once tests, got all reports.

There is no more $ make test-cov.
