Re: Bug#597571: nodejs: non common executable name

Note that i tried to warn upstream nodejs several months ago, but it was
already too late, so i renamed it to comply.

Please also note that nodejs runs (js) scripts, so the renaming means
each nodejs module[0] that may be packaged in the future,
and that provides executables, will need to be patched accordingly.

User scripts are at stake, too, and users are probably going to
manually link nodejs to node.

Nowadays nodejs users are mostly downloading the package from some ubuntu's ppa,
instead of the debian package, because of that renaming problem.
