Less dependencies is definitely better, but that doesn't mean "write the code because we can't install it via npm.

A developer could come along, find this library, and hard-copy it into their source repo. The tested source code is there, and they don't have a dependency on npm.

This wouldn't work quite so well for large packages (chance of bugs is high and so patches are important), but for something like this? Just ditch npm.
