I'm all for simple, what happens if one of those scripts fails? E.g. failed compile

For example in cli:

cordova plugin add sqlite
platforms = ['android', 'windows8'];
for(p in platforms)
    installPlugin('sqlite');  // android ok! windows8 fails at 'src/compile_sqlite.js'

Is 'sqlite' at that point installed on android? Do we rollback the install? Run the uninstall()

For that reason, sandbox idea seems less chaotic with some hookApi - which would cleanup properly
if something goes wrong... 

What you're suggesting seems like it could work, until something goes wrong and leaves the
platform(s) project/native in an inconsistent state. Multiple that with "pluginb" that fails
at 'src/compile_stuff.js'

Could be doable but not sure well it would work.
