I know I'm very very late to this thread but can I ask why Bower?  Bower
has a hard requirement on Node.js which was removed as a dependency in
Havana.  Why are we reintroducing this requirement?

For Solaris, a requirement on Node.js is especially problematic as there
is no official SPARC port and I'm not aware of anybody else working on one.

I agree that XStatic isn't really the best solution here but are there
any other solutions that don't involve Node.js?
