Make /usr/bin/node available so shebang works

Asked by Richard

1. Node scrips launch using #!/usr/bin/env node, this does not work with the 13.10 nodejs package
- the 'node' command needs to launch Node.js
- update-alternatives or similar function can be used to distinguish from that other node package.

2. Node.js is not useful without npm. It is outdated to have separate packages.
- Installing the main package should install both.
- some sub-package could exist for the unlikely desire to run node without npm.
