I am no fan of bundling!

I appreciate the concern for keeping resources tight, but have seen no 
actual measurements as to the damage caused by tracking upstream 
projects individually - and I see a real damage to bundling in that it 
weakens tracking our upstreams (are bundled jQuery plugins up-to-date? 
How to check that - as a developer and as a user?).

Perl team has recently gone _away_ from bundling modules.

...but I still remember when I adviced you to not taking serious the 
complaints about the "node" name - we lost ~3 years on that account :-(

So I guess my advice is to _not_ listen directly to what I think, but 
only take it as inspiration - try distinguish between noise and 
substantial parts from those frowning upon tiny packages.  I agree that 
a package containing essentially a single line of code is insane.

What do anyone in the team think?
