snapcraft (Ubuntu)

Bug Description


 * snacraft would be able to run multiple times when using a part
   with the nodejs plugin.

 * Doing rebuilds in todays release is complicated as npm is extracted
   during build but the original source is wiped out by the Tar instance

[Test Case]

 * Create snapcraft project with a part that uses the nodejs plugin and
   run `snapcraft build` N times.

 * Run `python3 -m integration_tests.test_nodejs_plugin`

[Regression Potential]

 * None
