npm removing similar packages

What I was trying to do?

Install bootstrap and ng-bootstrap

npm install --save bootstrap

What Happened Instead

bootstrap removed ng-bootstrap on running the install in reverse order, ng-bootstrap removed bootstrap.

Reproduction Steps

npm install --save @ng-bootstrap/ng-bootstrap
npm install  --save bootstrap

$ node -p process.platform

I was not able to reproduce following these steps and matching setup (Darwin and npm 6.11.3). Were you seeing this as part of a big package rather than a small reproduce?
