Wanted to draw attention to a new plugin we've created for allowing Android
apps to behave as a service on Android (without actually being a service!)

We use it as part of our chrome.gcm, chrome.notifications, and
chrome.alarms plugins.

Under-the-hood, it uses less-well-known Android features to have an
Activity start without any visual cues, then have it be able to switch to
the foreground through "task reparenting". Crazy stuff, but nice results :)
