Personally, I do like GOPATH a lot better than node_modules because of the global dependencies. In NPM you have a dependency repo for every project which is not so bad, except the culture of Node is to have a module with 3 lines of code and 300 lines of tests so every single project has hundreds of MB's of node_modules... I also like GOPATH a tiny tiny bit better than .cargo because I only have to keep track of one directory (GOPATH) instead of two directories (.cargo and whatever directory I'm currently working in).
