Subject Android platform scripts
Date Fri, 27 Sep 2013 15:13:30 GMT
The Android platform scripts use shelljs.exec's synchronous mode. This is a
terrible hack that leaks filehandles by the hundred, wastes lots of CPU
cycles, and can cause EMFILE on OSX because it runs out of filehandles.

I wanted to rewrite the scripts to be async and use child_process.exec or
.spawn. I started to, but rapidly found that the tangle of callbacks that
resulted was terrible and confusing.

I propose using Q.js here as well (and dropping shelljs as a dependency, if
it was only ever used for .exec).

Any objections?
