Agreed.  I'm not sure if Android actually supports this.  We should
probably write some JUnit tests against a multi-platform config.xml to
test this and make sure that our parser actually works well.

+1 on this as well. The problem is that the documentation covers the
PhoneGap Build use case and the CLI use case, but not the stand-alone
use case.  We should document the stand-alone use case, since that's
really for people who are detail-oriented, and are using things such
as the CordovaWebView component.
