[annotator-dev] Make a package of current 2.0 annotator

running `npm link` from pkg still creates a link at the repository level,
i.e. nothing changes. i'd be curious to see if anyone else is having the
same experience.

our chief concern with modifications to core is creating a custom UI, so
that we can pass our own templates into annotator and have them registered
as dialog's, editors, etc. right now we are hooking into lifecycle methods
but nothing more. i know from previous discussions that it was one of the
chief goals of 2.0 to decouple the UI, but i'm wondering if i should create
a github issue to track this future functionality if there's enough
interest among the community?

thanks again,
