While it's a good thing that we have many many small modules that have distinct units of functionality, this does mean a lot of round-trips back and forth to npm while jitsu is installing.

Some investigation is required, but I'd like to reduce the amount of round-trip HTTP requests that are made to npm registry in order for jitsu to install.

I suggest using one of npm's bundling commands, or perhaps just vendoring the all deps into the .node_modules folder for releases. Whatever we choose, it should be the choice that will require the least amount of total installation time and possibilities for failure.

+1 We can bundle all our dependencies

This seems like a reasonable thing to do. I'll investigate adding this in time for the next release.
