NB! The fact that npm *currently* need no patching is irrelevant.  As an 
example, imagine a security fix NMU - i.e. a patch applied by someone 
not closely familiar with the package: Would easily violate the license.

I therefore recommend that if npm is packaged for Debian then we take 
the necessary steps from the beginning even if not strictly required, to 
avoid future complications.
