Currently the installation of open source (Node.js) has two very unfortunate consequences.
1 - I have to IPL my machine. 2 - It wipes out previous version (i.e. 0.12.12 will be wiped out by 0.12.13 of Node.js)
This makes it very laborious and risky to upgrade version. Laborious because IPLing a machine isn't a 1 minute thing, and risky because I don't know if the new version will cause issues.
My recommendation is to allow multiple versions of open source exist in IFS and developer can alter PATH and LIBPATH to dictate what should be used. In this way we follow how Linux platforms work and lessen the number of surprises.
