Why the hell am I publishing JAR's on npm?

I occasionally/often write some Node.js code that uses Amazon's SQS service. ElasticMQ is super handy for testing that code without having to connect to Amazon servers. I thought it would be nice if I could put elasticmq in my devDependencies so that other people wouldn't have to find and download the version I had tested against, and now I can.

Also, I get a kind of perverse amusement out of it.
