Why

// Ensure variable `obj` is an object, the traditional way
obj = (typeof obj === 'object' && !(obj instanceof Array)) ? obj : {};
// Ensure variable obj is an object, using ens.obj
obj = ens.obj(obj);

ens makes it easy to ensure JS data types. With JS, ensuring data types requires a lot of ugly code. It's easy to specify variable defaults though: obj = obj || {}. The problem with this pattern is, when obj is set to a value which evaluates to true, the default value {} won't be bound to obj. This is where ens comes in: obj = ens.obj(obj). Which results in the binding of an object to obj no mather what type of data obj is.
