On this same note, I was talking with another dev the other day, that its incredible that you can't easily on npmjs.org sort repos by dependencies, nor easily see how many dependencies the repo's dependencies will pull in. It makes it very hard to make an informed decision about an individual module you want to include. It's very hard to tell if that lib you pulled in(or one its dependencies) will pull in the entire npm ecosystem and thus some nefarious lib.
Thanks for the reply and you are absolutely right!
