Done - please double check someone!

Where are we with npm2deb. Should I submit a bug, or has it already been
fixed? Sorry - I am suck on Stretch on my laptop (waiting for more
time), so I do lots of manual fixing when working on a new package ATM.

Backports - It struck me when doing the updates to the wiki that we
might need a versioned depends on nodejs [Build-Depends: nodejs (>=
4.8.3~dfsg-1~) to make it clear for people (like Andreas Tille) that
might want to start backporting node stuff to stretch. Otherwise they
will need to add back the patches to make things work.

Also I note on the wiki that the "nodejs-abi" might become a mandatory
goal for Stretch! Where did we get with that? Should we make it
mandatory for Buster?
