I think npm would be the way to go in the future, maybe we need a bit of iteration before
we’re ready to go directly to using the public npm perhaps.

We will have a “trusted couchdb instance” available soon (before Christmas, this year)
in the ASF infrastructure which could trivially be set up to host these. I’ll ping dev@
as soon as its up, and there’s no reason why it couldn’t host a couch configured like
npm to start with. Or other stuff.
