Good luck with all that.
I think the self contained route is probably better since it fits with how
things work with Node and its modules. Something like install the packages
in a clean cache using npm 2 so that they aren't maximally flat. Then tgz
up the package folder. It'll have all deps at

The maintenance cost is reduced since they're just bundled with the
package. You can treat each release of say gulp as a snapshot of their deps
and bundle it with them. Packages

I'm OK with creating more hoops to jump through in this case. I think the
approach you've outlined is a bit wonky. There are ways to bundle deps
without flattening versions. You could package grunt, gulp, and whatever

Just uploaded node-lodash-packages which includes all per method modules
Thanks for your interest in the Lodash package. You all shouldn't need to
build from the source. It's better to simply use the packages as provided.
That way there's less likely to be user error, especially since you're not
familiar with the project.
You can get the packages by querying
control: block -1 by 836722
Some dependencies for gulp  declare dependencies like
lodash.assignwith which current lodash package is not providing.
Though this would require updating unglifyjs as current version throws
