Slimming my gulp seed: use CDNs to do their job

Developing front end applications with Gulp is delightful.

Some time ago I investigated how other people were configuring gulp projects and made a fork with my own opinions.
My seed used Backbone, Marionette, Underscore and jQuery and I had them added to the browserify build task.

Turns out, this is not so great because the size of the bundle is HUGE.

In this new version, I use those libraries from well known CDNs, so in most cases they will be already on the browser cache. This makes build times really fast and load times a breeze.

You can find my gulp seed on github.
