Exactly.  We have to test this code base extensively before we package
it up for Solaris.  Under no circumstances do we just blindly repackage
the releases and push them out to customers.  Node.js is a total
incompatibility for Solaris.  If upstream moves to using Bower we'll be
forced to look for alternatives at managing the JavaScript libraries.

Why were the libraries ripped from the Horizon codebase in the first
place?  It seems to me they belong with the code using it.
