NodeRed Beagleboard module not part of default image?

Taking the BeagleBone Blue for a spin, and trying out NodeRed.

Works fine, but the IO interfacing is missing…?

This library http://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-node-beaglebone is installed, but not working?

Trying the install fails:

`

debian@beaglebone:~$ npm install node-red-node-beaglebone

What am I missing?

Realised that the Nodered Beaglebone library is depending on the Node serial library which has no platform support of this.

I guess this requires some substantial hacking…?

I had hoped this worked out of the box as advertised.
