#' Shiny's module feature lets you break complicated UI and server logic into
#' smaller, self-contained pieces. Compared to large monolithic Shiny apps,
#' modules are easier to reuse and easier to reason about. See the article at
#' \url{http://shiny.rstudio.com/articles/modules.html} to learn more.
#'
#' @param module A Shiny module server function
#' @param id An ID string that corresponds with the ID used to call the module's
#'   UI function
#' @param ... Additional parameters to pass to module server function
#' @param session Session from which to make a child scope (the default should
#'   almost always be used)
#'
#' @return The return value, if any, from executing the module server function
#' @seealso \url{http://shiny.rstudio.com/articles/modules.html}
