Well fuck it. Copy paste into a class in the project repo.
Often, you only really need 20 lines of code from a library that is 1k lines anyway... Plus I can refactor it to fit the style of the project, I can add extra unit tests, extend functionality, document it better so our engineers understand how the code works, etc.
