Awesome. :)  I should write more blog posts, because this feedback is
really useful.  For the record, it was this one:

Thanks for the pointer to that page.  I know that iconv-lite claims to
be "faster"... on casual inspection I didn't think it was impossible
to package, but if it's easy to patch in plain iconv and avoid waiting
for the NEW queue, I'm going to do that.

I think this mostly affects node-encoding, which I haven't looked at
yet because I thought I was blocked by iconv-lite.

That's good to hear - I've filed an ITP.  I'm not planning on
packaging moment-timezone if I can avoid it.  Looks like I'll have to
bypass the grunt build system, and won't be able to run the tests
because they depend on nodeunit. :(
