Was npm2deb rewriting shebang ?
There is no particular urge in dropping /usr/bin/nodejs, though it would be
nice to get there for Buster.

Right now, to my knowledge, it's only version 6.11.2~dfsg-2 in unstable
that installs /usr/bin/node.

This should be mandatory for nodejs c++ addons, though there are not plenty
of them and it's really easy to fix using the dh helper.
Other pure javascript libraries should not be concerned.
