Yes, and more specifically words of wisdom from people have have been
living with hand-installing these libraries.

It seems obvious that it should go in ${PREFIX}/share/javascript or
something like that.  These are 'libraries' in some sense, but not in
the unix sense.  So I would like a sanity check on that.

The bigger issue is that there don't seem to be norms for this in the
javascript community - they seem to expect people to do things by hand.
