Hmm, hadn't considered that, sounds kinda interesting.  But I think we have
to assume that folks might have it installed "globally", and then the npm
-g installs won't really work. We can't  FORCE people to install node
"locally", can we?

I don't see why a build tool needs to be installed globally.  If we install
ANYTHING globally, then we're opening up the possibility of folks
inadvertently installing/uninstalling/upgrading things that we depend on.
 Not great.
