The experience of other "competing" languages (Rust, Go) suggests that
things work best if the build system and the package manager (or, more
broadly, package/project dependency management) are tightly integrated
into a build toolchain.

Also, if you are interested in package/project dependency management, I
highly recommend "So you want to write a package manager" by Sam Boyer[1].
It definitely clarified quite a few things for me.
