Do we really want to maintain two different versions of nodejs?
Personally I don't think that it is a good idea to maintain both the
newest and the LTS version of a software in the official repositories.
The only package that I know of where we do this currently is firefox
and I don't think that it has worked very well in the past with firefox.
