CB-6106: Add support for nativeURL attribute on Entry objects

> File needs a method to get a webview-native URL from an Entry
> -------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-6106
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android, iOS, Plugin File
>    Affects Versions: 3.4.0
>            Reporter: Ian Clelland
>            Assignee: Ian Clelland
> I was really, really hoping to avoid having to include this in the API, but it appears
that there are some WebView interfaces (specifically {{<video>}} and {{<audio>}}
HTML tags) which cannot be made to work with {{cdvfile://}} URLs.
> (See CB-6079 for the issue which triggered this revelation)
> I'm going to create a method ({{toNativeURL}}) on Entry objects, inherited by DirectoryEntry
and FileEntry, which exposes a URL that can be used as a {{src}} attribute for an HTML5 media
> Usage:
> {code}
> requestFileSystem(PERSISTENT, 0, function(fs) {
>     fs.root.getFile("movie.mp4", {}, function(entry) {
>         alert(entry.toNativeURL());
>         document.getElementById('my-video-player').src=entry.toNativeURL();
>     });
> });
> {code}
> Developers will be able to use this in all cases where they need to set the src of an
HTML audio/video tag, or in any other cases where the WebView doesn't correctly proxy URL
requests through the app.
