Yes, by all means if you're using it a lot. But a separate library
with its own docs and test suite and everything? No, that's a joke.

Look at it like this: the language is so hard to get things
right in that libraries like this are necessary…

Sorry - I've been ill. Actually, it is depended on by approx 120 packages in npm, otherwise I would have just bundled it with tape.
