True, but at the end of the day, it's only one guy who made that mistake. The guy who wrote line-numbers. But then, line-numbers itself is only 35 lines of code. Add in the aforementioned 17 and now he has a 52 line package. Is that small enough to inline, or not? And how many lines does it take? That's really where I was coming from. Yes you can point to this one guy in this one situation, but in reality, there is no good answer. Because if we decide that 52 line libraries are OK, then what happens when the maintainer for line-numbers decides to melt down and yank his library? Babel-core and gulp are still hosed.

NPM needs to do the same thing that every other package manager does: You can only "un-publish" insofar as it hides your package from searches and new dependencies. Packages that had an existing dependency still keep that, and can still access your now-hidden package.
