[DAEMON-14] Improve global package install support
appc install -gneeds to download and install packages from the registry server and store them in the
.appceleratorhome directory. This is essentially done, but we need to allow multiple versions of packages to be installed at the same time. The Appc CLI must also take into consideration the Node.js version when running
npm installto install package dependencies because it determines the API version and architecture for which native C++ addons are compiled against. If a Node version setting is present, then the
installcommand can run
npm installwith that specific Node version.
