Thanks, that works as expected. Now to the next step. Is there any way
for Sinan to invoke Faxien with a custom directory directive (just
like you suggested now)? I would prefer to have a config file with
just the dependencies listed and ideally Sinan should just invoke
Faxien to bring in those dependencies into a predetermined directory
inside my code-base.

That would vastly improve my workflow. In this respect I like the way
how Rebar works, it lets me declare my dependencies in the config file
and it brings them in nicely into my project directory.
