Subject Re: cli plugins 'alias'?

Agreed with Michal. There's actually a third option coming too: we want
apps to be able to name dependencies. So you should be able to copy in the
mobile-spec app, then `cordova plugin add` or whatever the syntax becomes,
and it will install all of the app's dependencies.
