Subject Re: plugman + plugin spec final q's

The use case is any app that has any additional native functionality added
by the developer. ( every app I have ever written )
Otherwise we force an all or nothing stance with cordova use,  Android,
iOS, wp7, wp8 all support using cordova as a view in an otherwise strictly
native app, or adding a native view in an otherwise browser-control
(typical cordova) based app.
I am not suggesting we make drastic efforts to support every type of app
that could exist, but if we can make a few simple changes to allow it, I
think we should.
Ideally everyone would write any additions to their app as a plugin
according to our spec, but do we need to force it?
