I released a helper library on npm to work with multivalue and damn is it easy to release a package on npm versus what I had to do with python and pip. I think there is definitely something to be said about lowering the bar and making it easy to deploy things.

Node has been pretty great to work with when building C bindings and now with releasing packages. I wonder how much of it is due to javascript the language and how much of it is that programming languages have evolved quite a bit and I guess node might've learned a lot of the pain points from python. It very well could be that node just a built great experience using the experience of everything that came before it which is quite cool.
