They are under a ./cordova folder. They are not "laying around." No one
has to use them if they don't want to.

Given that the CLI tools get ~1000 downloads per month, and issues are
being filed about the inconsistent behavior, I disagree with your
conclusion Joe. _You_ may find no benefit from it (I know your workflow,
you're in Eclipse most of the time, and pretty much solely in Android), so
I understand why you see no benefit.

I see massive benefit in this.

Finally: Android has basically all of this functionality already
implemented. Simply put: the API surface of the scripts needs to change
slightly to make it consistent cross-platform. So the argument of "this is
hard" fails here because it's already all there :)
