Sure, but keep in mind that several IDEs would like to benefit from a
way to install nodejs without having to use the installer.
Although, for a user who wouldn't use JavaScript, there would be no
reason to annoy them with nodejs at that point.
IMO, it's still best to have a wizard allowing node.js installation from
running IDE when it becomes useful.

Not sure about explicit wizards. P2 can invoke native installers, why not utilize that?
