Actually there is already a module in the npm registry called "emoji"
https://www.npmjs.com/package/emoji
but it seems less popular (963 downloads in the last month against
1.856.808 downloads in the same period for node-emoji). The github repo
is also stuck at 2014-07-05 whereas node-emoji is more active.

The policy within Debian is whoever gets there first can get hold of a
package name but I'd prefer to reach a consensus among us.
