I think we may have to multiversion it yes. Been thinking that for
I'll try and have a look at doing a lodash4 version of the spec
over the weekend...
Great, thanks for looking into it!

Oh probably quite a lot do, it's been a bit chicken and egg having
to try and do everything at once, or even audit what is actually
doable - ie what dependants have a new version with support.
Yeah, that's very fair. I've been thinking for a while now-- and this
is probably a separate discussion than just grunt/lodash-- that it
would be very useful to do a thorough audit of all the nodejs-*
packages in Fedora and figure out which ones are outdated, which ones
are uninstallable due to some other package having an unsatisfied
dependency, which dependent packages are outdated, etc.
I've only looked into grunt now because it breaking broke one of my
packages. But it would be really nice to be more proactive here. As it
is, I fear a reasonable number of the nodejs-* packages in Fedora
right now may not actually be very useful...
