npm i @xtuc/long fails (affects webpack)
npm i @xtuc/long
fails with 404. this is a recent failure mode. this breaks webpack installations, for one
update: if i move aside my npmrc, it works; the npmrc only defined an unrelated @ repo, and the npm log shows that it is correctly looking to registry.npmjs.org
npm version 5.6.0
