We all would like to see Nodejs updated.

Noone has to justify.  It will happen - that's not the point here.

Performance is nice, but ranks as a feature (it is not a bug that 
current packaged Nodejs is slower than has since proven possible).

Changed API may break existing packages currently in Debian.  I do agree 
that those packages should then be upgraded as well, but "working code" 
is of higher concern to me than "shiny code".

That said, I do appreciate your input, David: not commenting on the rest 
simply means I have no comments on those parts - I expect it to be 
valuable input for Jérémy.

Sounds like it would be great if you could join the team and work 
directly on (branches of) our canonical packaging git.

But really I am the wrong one to judge that, as Jérémy is doing all the 
hard work on these packages.

@Jérémy: What do you say - you want a co-maintainer?
