I think it doesn't make sense packaging npm within nodejs,
- they are very different software
- npm depends on many other modules, nodejs doesn't
- the packaging work is very different
There is still work to do on npm dependencies. Some of them
should better be left bundled in npm (because they are so bound
to npm and better alternatives exist, or because nobody would
use them anyway).
I'll have some time to finish this job next month. If you can
help before, we can talk on #debian-js.
