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.
