Bug#962662: ITP: node-addon-api -- Headers for using Node.js N-API from C++

  Description     : Headers for using Node.js N-API from C++

 This package contains header-only C++ wrapper classes which
 simplify the use of the C based N-API provided by Node.js
 when using C++.
 It provides a C++ object model and exception handling semantics
 with low overhead.
 N-API is an ABI stable C interface provided by Node.js for
 building native addons.

With latest Node.js releases, legacy addons will need somewhat
more important rewrites, and now that the stable N-API is available
it's only a matter of time before a C++ addon need this module.

Maintained in pkg-javascript-devel, by me along with node-gyp,
node-nan, nodejs (they go along together).
