Is it possible to set a base URL for NodeJS app?

Question!

I want to be able to host multiple NodeJS apps under the same domain, without using sub-domains (like google.com/reader instead of images.google.com). The problem is that I'm always typing the first part of the url e.g. "/reader" in Express/NodeJS.

How can I set up an Express app so that the base URL is something.com/myapp?

So instead of:

app.get("/myapp", function (req, res) {
   // can be accessed from something.com/myapp
});

I can do:

// Some set-up
app.base = "/myapp"

app.get("/", function (req, res) {
   // can still be accessed from something.com/myapp
});

I'd also like to configure Connect's staticProvider to behave the same way (right now it defaults to serving static files to something.com/js or something.com/css instead of something.com/myapp/js)

I was looking for this feature but for API routes, not for static files. What I did was that when I initialized the router, I added the mount path. So my configuration looks like this

//Default configuration
app.configure(function(){
    app.use(express.compress());
    app.use(express.logger('dev'));
    app.set('json spaces',0);
    app.use(express.limit('2mb'));
    app.use(express.bodyParser());

    app.use('/api', app.router);        //
