Nodules - module loader for Node with automated dependency resolution and module reloading

While the world of nodejs has been busily been working on competing package managers to be the rubygems of the node world, Kris Zyp has quietly come up a novel approach. He overloads the require statement to do automatic downloading, caching and dependency resolution of modules based on urls, not a central repository. This decentralized approach means that anyone can use the package management features without registering the modules with a repository somewhere. Also it packs useful features like hot reloading of local modules and grouping of module aliases into packages.
