Mitigate `npm test` permission error #95

merged 3 commits into from

sh node_modules/.bin/vows should work, as vows has a good shebang line. However, on Mac OS X, somehow vows is still being interpreted as a shell script:

node_modules/.bin/vows: line 4: syntax error near unexpected token `('
node_modules/.bin/vows: line 4: `var path   = require('path'),'
npm ERR! Test failed.  See above for more details.
npm ERR! not ok code 0

Fortunately, this is easily fixed by manually calling vows with node rather than sh.
