well, I picked up the gauntlet and taking much more than 5 minutes (;-)  I
created (because dependencies) three packages:

- r-cran-miniui (needed by r-cran-shinyjs)
- r-cran-shinyjs
- r-cran-v8

They are not closed (UNRELEASED) and no tag. Please, could you review and if you
agree I closed, tag and you sponsor them?
