My problem with npm is that it either tries to install stuff in some 
random directory in my home directory or suggests, with a straight face, 
that I chown -R $USER /usr/local

I'm kind of liking bundler for ruby - I list the deps (potentially from 
svn or github), can set up contexts (including easily having different 
deps for jruby vs ruby for example) and check the results into my VCS 
and deploy them all really easily.
