Using Prophiler with zend-expressive

A few weeks back we released a Prophiler PSR-7 middleware which we created during a hack session on Adroit, our little, clever ADR middleware implementation. I`d like to show you how to integrate the Prophiler middleware in a zend-expressive application. As it turns out this is super simple.
