 I've several complex examples locally. Those works normally.

 Yes, this is the reason. UglifyJS does several alternations, not
affecting the code itself. As such, the UglifyJS build dependency is
not a hard one.

 That would 'fix' it, ie it would look like the same to the one from upstream.
But please note that UglifyJS 1.x [1] and 2.y [2] are different
projects, developed differently and not an upgrade.
I'd like to see UglifyJS2 2.y packaged as well, but it seems the
JavaScript team is lacking manpower.
