> {{FileEntry.toURL()}} and {{DirectoryEntry.toURL()}} should return, by default, URLs
which are usable by the webview, as {{src}} for video, audio and image tags.
> Practically, this means that {{.toURL()}} should return the same values as {{.toNativeURL()}}
currently does: a file URL if possible; a content (Android) or assets-library (iOS) library
if that's required, or a cdvfile URL as a last resort.
> {{.toNativeURL}} should stick around for a while (with a deprecation notice) since it's
been released, and I've advocated its use on various forums. It should have exactly the same
semantics as {{.toURL}} though.
> We can introduce a {{.toInternalURL}} method to format cdvfile URLs for passing over
the bridge, since that is the format that the native side of the file plugin expects, and
it would be nice to have a single place where that conversion is done.
