Two new features could be useful from cli:
a) Create an initial plugin from a template
cordova plugin create [path] [name]

> cordova plugin create F:/GitHub/MyPlugin MyPlugin

b)  Update all plugins from a cordova application
cordova plugins update

The implementation is likely tricky, how to detect plugin modification? Version check?
I image it would remove & install the new plugin.

> cordova plugins update -local

Could  be useful to force the removal and reinstall of only local plugins (from a filesystem
path) / under development... 

I haven't gotten around to running .spec tests but something simple as:
c) Running tests within plugin directory
cd F:/GitHub/MyPlugin
cordova plugin test

[Test #1] Passed
[Test #2] Failed: Reference error foo doesn't not exist

Would be very useful.
