This should be good to go, right?  It passes the tests on this end.
> Resource Loading API for Android
> --------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-3384
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Android
>            Reporter: Andrew Grieve
>            Assignee: Braden Shepherdson
>             Fix For: 3.0.0
> Motivations:
> 1. Many plugins do not handle URLs correctly when they are in the form content: or file:///android_asset.

> 2. For the cordova-app-harness, there needs to be a way to re-route resource load requests
so that the harness can load app resources while still respecting the <content> tag.
> Short Description
> All plugins can watch the loading of any uri's Eg: opening of files, the browser making
requests to load files etc etc.
> In addition to watching they may assist in loading the uri's.
> For example, a use case here is - suppose a mimetype for a hypothetical extension ".abc"
doesn't exist, a plugin could check the extension of a loaded uri and set the mimetype. This
would now be set for all files loaded in the system.
> Pseudo code of the mechanism:
> 1. make a request 'R' to a uri.
> 2. loop through all plugins to see if any plugins change the request
> 3. if the request changes, set 'R' to this modified request and repeat step 3
> 4. load request 'R' and return result
