Pin dependencies #26
This helps against things suddenly exploding in your face, such as our deploys today because xmldom slipped a not-so-backwards-compatible update in a patch version. Who can blame them, it's impossible to know all the different ways people are using your project and what effects a minor change might have, and how that might break things in subtle or not so subtle ways for them.
Long story short, let's pin dependencies so any change is explicit & tested, and our builds and deploys are reproducible.
