  Description     : Node.js module that enables the code cache to speed up instantiation time

 V8 is the JavaScript Engine used by Node.js and Chromium; it uses just-in-time
 compilation (JIT) to execute JavaScript code, and code caching to lessen the
 overhead to initially parse and compile a script.
 .
 The ability to tap into V8 to produce/consume this cache was introduced in
 Node v5.7.0. This module attaches a require hook to use V8's code cache to
 speed up instantiation time.
 .
 Node.js is an event-based server-side JavaScript engine.

This module is required for node-yarnpkg, see ITP:
https://bugs.debian.org/843021
and wiki:
https://salsa.debian.org/js-team/node-yarnpkg/wikis/home

My intention is to maintain it within the JavaScript maintainers team.

The repo will be on salsa:
