The NIM provider has enough divergence from other package providers that it would be helpful to have support for an install_options hash, similar to gem, pip, and windows.

Original description:
The NIM package provider is missing a parameter for installp_bundle.
It would be very helpful in many cases to install lpp_sources and specify
with -a installp_bundle=yyyyyyy only a subset of the whole lpp_source.
