A lot of packages use package.json instead of bower.json, but AFAICT the basic setup is the same, with the main file indicated under main.

Maybe I'm missing something but it would seem useful to add package.json to the search path as I have here, to handle that case.

Sorry, package.json is conflated with node.js which is why other package managers such as bower (which did originally use it) moved away.

I figured that was the reason, but is there a concrete scenario where this would cause problems? The only alternative I can see is to track down the maintainers of every package and get them to add a bower.json file.
