    It would be really great to have this feature as this is one of my main headaches when
developing (and maintaining) Cordova Android plugins. This would definitely help make plugins
play nice with each other.

> Many plugins need to refer to JARs from the Android SDK. They currently embed a copy
of the respective files in them and install it into the application's libs/ directory. This
however might create incompatibility issues with other plugins which may use the same or dependent
> A good alternative would be to be able to specify a relative path to the SDK directory
in <lib-file> as it is now possible with the <framework> element with custom=false.

> <source-file src="src/android/com/plugin/android-support-v13.jar" target-dir="libs/"
> could become 
> <lib-file src="extras/android/support/v13/android-support-v13.jar" custom="false"
