I definitely agree that KeyboardShrinksView makes a tonne more sense for
apps (as opposed to webpages), and it's what we use on Android. Shame they
reversed the decision (I didn't actually realize that).

One reason to keep it as a plugin is that the logic seems to be hard to get
right and so needs to be tweaked frequently. Plugins let you iterate faster
than if it were built-in.

Still, I think we're hoping to reduce the number of plugins that we
maintain as a part of the core Cordova project, since we really don't do a
great job at giving them the attention that they deserve (just have a look
at all the unaddressed PRs against them).

One of the intended goals (at least IMO) of moving plugins to npm and
npm-style-naming, is to make less distinction between "core" cordova
plugins and community-maintained plugins, so that the higher-quality
community-maintained plugins get more usage.

Interested in what others think.
