IMO a package manager is only needed for scripty throw-away 
programming. I sincerely doubt it has a big effect on serious 
application development.

If you build something with a long horizon you don't need a 
package manager. The time it takes to download and build 
libraries from github is negligible compared to the overall 
development time. Besides, if you build something big you also 
ought to understand the code you are using and the build process, 
even if it is a library. You have to be able to maintain the 
library in case it is abandoned...
