I don't quite remember of what we said. We know that we don't want to reinvent the wheel, 
and probably want a system that is able to deal with dependencies, both python and js/css. 
Our server especially require that some files are installed in the profile dir for now, so I'm 
not sure of how zipimport will work with js.

I personally had a look at npm/bower/component.io

I have a slight preference for component.io and npm (even if in dev we use bower right now)
but didn't had a deep look at how it handles python files.
