Private repository issues

Is there anyone using NPM where a private artifact repository is needed? We still seem to have a lot of modules still reaching out directly to the Internet. An example being the gecko driver.

How do we get NPM to only pull these artifacts once and recognize they exist and not cause rebuilds or other side-effects?
