I think we should document plugman-only projects, because that's what
exists today.  It's much easier to start to use plugman for a project
than to use the CLI, especially if you've done your own modifications
to the Java code in your Cordova project, which a few people have
done.  I see nothing here that helps our existing users maintain their
codebases.  If this project teaches you anything, it should teach you
that just because you want people to use your project a certain way,
it doesn't mean that they will.
