I didn't find the npm nor nodejs packages on Debian testing; apparently
they are only in unstable. However "apt-get install npm nodejs" worked
from universe on Ubuntu 11.04. I also needed "apt-get install git".

I tried installing without the -g option. This seemed to copy a
directory tree into the current directory.

npm install flashproxy
npm start flashproxy

Anyone else care to test this procedure? This is a way of running a
flash proxy without a browser; i.e. as a background daemon.
