Once we've made NodeJS a hard requirement for building and made sure nothing else in the tree is depending on it, and we can remove it from MozillaBuild. Note that due to the way the configure code written in bug 1481693 works, configure falls back to $PATH to find Node. This means that, although the announcements for adding NodeJS to the tree will have told people to install Mozilla's private copy of Node by running `mach bootstrap --no-system-changes', some number of people won't have bothered. Those people will have working builds because they're falling back to the NodeJS in the current MozillaBuild. So the release notes for whatever version of MozillaBuild that this ships with should remind people to run `mach bootstrap --no-system-changes`.
Already have a working patch locally. Won't be missed from my perspective!
