Ah, I wasn't clear; my concern was whether the tools chosen would be
compatible with the CI environment. I'm hoping that distribution of the
tools isn't our concern (see below).

I believe the nodeenv method of installing node solves this, as it's
entirely local to the development environment.

They're trying to resolve that https://github.com/jshint/jshint/issues/1234

But regardless, jshint doesn't have to be installed from a Linux
repository; it's usually installed using npm alongside the other node tools.
