Discussion on: Having Moment.js Replacements Is Not Enough

I hope to get into bundle optimization at work soon, where I'm almost sure I'll find moment lurking. I expect it to be in any project that has a date selector, time-related visualizations etc.
I know this has been the case in my previous workplaces where I took care to check that.

About rebuilding dependencies - that might actually be possible. Since npm usually installs the whole package - unbuilt code etc, included - it might be possible to create a script that takes selected packages, creates a link so moment will use the skeleton instead and rebuilds.
It could be a bit of a headache and take some time, but this script could only be ran every time you update one of those packages. Maybe one of the npm pre/post scripts could take care of that automatically.
