Is it possible to pass arbitrary flags to node?

I came across this question on StackOverflow, which complains about a syntax error in a node module at runtime.

It turns out that Node v4.x does not support destructuring assignment unless node is started with the --harmony_destructuring flag. If it was possible to pass this flag via an environment variable, it would solve this type of compatibility issues.

Is it possible now?
If not, allowing this may break Meteor if used unwisely, but shouldn’t we give this power to advanced users?
