I'm just wondering what might be the risks associated with manipulating the 
contents of the node_modules folder outside the normal "npm install" etc 
commands. IOW ... are there reasons why the a raw "drop in" of packages 
into the node_modules is a bad idea Vs doing it through the normal "npm 
install" mechanisms?

I have a colleague proposing this basic idea as a solution to a problem we 
have (longer story that probably doesn't need airing here). For me, it just 
feels like the wrong thing to do (scares me), but my "gut feeling" is not a 
good enough reason for me to say that I think we should not consider doing 

So, I'd love if someone could enlighten me to the potential dangers, or if 
there's no real danger and nothing to worry about.

Thanks guys.
