Synced local dependencies

Hi. I’m using wml instead of npm link to sync and consolidate dependencies into node_modules because

There’s a few issues with it. Synced dependencies

Is there any solution to this already? Or could there be something like

“synced-local-dependency”: “synced”,
“synced-local-dependency”: “local”,
“synced-local-dependency”: “*”,
“synced-local-dependency”: “0.0.0”

that would let synced dependencies be listed in package.json, as well as avoid them being removed?

Beyond that, what if NPM had a sync feature? Something like “sync:/path”, where it synced a local path. Something like

or similar.

Thanks!
