Why build a new system rather than push for changes in npm itself? There's plenty of speculation out there, but perhaps you could talk about how Yarn got started; or generally how that kind of decision plays out at facebook? (that is - ramping up an open source project of this scope and potential scale is not a trivial undertaking, how did you decide it was the right way forward?)
