Cons: * one month too late * chromium isn't even using libv8 nor libv8-i18n * nodejs won't be in wheezy * current libv8 seems good enough for drizzle and osmium Pros: * libv8 3.10.8 won't require transition for each patch-level fix, and that is something really good from a security-team P.O.V. * i spent a hell of a lot of time to make sure it runs on mipsel * and as a bonus it runs on kfreebsd-* More cons that pros, still if someone (a DD, of course) want to make that transition *today* i'll be happy to do my part of the job (i.e. upload nodejs compatible with libv8-3.10.8).
