> Cordova-android forces the target-dir of the <source-file> tag to be unique for
no reason.
> However, this causes an issue.
> It is always possible that two different plugins could have overlapped target-dir path.
> It is impossible for a plugin to know that the target-dir is overlapped with other plugins's
target dir.
> So, we should relax this requirement.
> For example, cordova-sqlite-storage has the following in its plugin.xml.
> {code}
>         <source-file src="src/android/libs/armeabi/" target-dir="libs/armeabi"/>
> {code}
> has the following in its plugin.xml.
> {code}
> 	<source-file src="src/android/armeabi" 	target-dir="libs" />
> {code}
> When adding two plugins, cordova-android throws an exception.
