Earlier you said only "other Debian packages":

   My plan was to simply keep /usr/bin/nodejs around for some time
   until no debian package rely on it.

Now you say "other user scripts".  I don't know how you would ever
tell whether "other user scripts" were relying on it.  There is no way
to for us to tell what people are doing on their computers (and nor
should there be).

Why would you bother with a deprecation warning, and forcing a lot of
users to change their code ?  Why not just leave the symlink
permanently ?
