I agree that it would be better to just run the tools that are part of the
development toolchain. I have been trying to remove all of the special
tooling and only kept that last step of running it on multiple devices (see
reasons below). There are other issues with the ios-deploy that I have not
yet resolved. It has an enormous delay in the middle of it and I have found
that deploys are significantly less reliable since I switched to it. About
30% of the time it just hangs near the run command and the deploy fails.

If you want to add the dependency script as a short-term measure, thats
fine. In the long term I think we need to fix the command line tools to
support the automated deploy properly on all platforms.

-- notes --
It may be possible to use the ios run command line components, but when I
first looked at it there were some issues. The easy solution seemed to keep
the little bit of special code from Medic.
As I recall:
* no support for obtaining a list of devices attached
* no support for deploy only (dont build) - all of the commands want to
prepare/build and that causes problems
* Medic needs to wrap each deploy in a timer to kill it if it doesnt
complete.
