We should run OK under node.js 0.10.0.


Recent tests led me to attempt to install pump with node 0.10.1, which failed. Here is the output:

cli output:

tail npm-debug.log:

I'm new to this whole node.js thing, but apparently you need to migrate from "waf" to "gyp", whatever that means.


I think this is working with the new 0.2.3. The unit tests don't work, but that's because of incompatibility in zombie. I'm going to wait till that gets up-to-date to worry much more about it.
