the --ignores CLI arg doesn't resolve path in the same way as other CLI args.

One problem here is that a non-top-level module does require('skipme') then users will need to give the full path for skipme which might be behind several layers of node_modules directories.

Relatedly, I was trying to browserify request which still doesn't work in the latest:

$ browserify -r request > bundle.js
Error: module "dns" not found from "/tmp/xyz/node_modules/request/node_modules/hawk/node_modules/sntp/lib/index.js"

nor does this work:

$ browserify -i dns -r request > bundle.js
Error: module "dns" not found from "/tmp/xyz/node_modules/request/node_modules/hawk/node_modules/sntp/lib/index.js"

Since browser-resolve is able to use this package.json

    "browser": {
        "module": false,
        "./path/to/file": false,

I guess this option should actually be implemented in browser-resolve, and browserify should merely delegate the option to it.

and I also think browser-resolve should implement an option like map that basic does this:

    "browser" : {
        "./path/to/file": "./path/to/another"

BTW, you might want to update browser-resolve version to 1.x for both module-deps and browserify. It has fixed a few bugs that allows core modules to be ignored.
