OK. If I get the energy, I'll look into how hard it would be to make npm detect

Considering how npm works,
I really don't understand what advantage that would bring.
Could you explain ?
I was thinking that someone might want to install several nodejs based
packages on their system. Say one has all its dependencies in debian,
and they have all been installed that way, but the other hasn't been
packaged for debian. Some of the second project's dependencies might be
installed already on their system, but when they used npm to install it,
these wouldn't be picked up and would have to be installed twice.
