    Would you guys prefer I point that by git fork instead just to get the build/tests passing?
I'd think pointing at a non-released version would also make it so this is not mergeable,
so not sure what the best state is to leave it at.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: CordovaLib
>    Affects Versions: 5.4.0, 5.3.3, 6.0.1, 6.1.1
>         Environment: OSX developing for iOS
>            Reporter: Roberto Andrade
> Since CB-9517 was merged and released in 5.3.0 it seems to have changed the approach
to adding a "custom framework" dependency declared in {{plugin.xml}} with the {{<framework
custom="true"/>}} directive into the xcode project, as per the [following change|].
> It assumes all frameworks are "embeddable", which is not true for a great chunk of frameworks
out there that have not being built with the new iOS 8/XCode 6 Cocoa Framework architecture.
Most of the frameworks I use (developed prior to Apple coming up with the "official" iOS 8
Framework utilities and Xcode project options) use community provided [iOS-Universal-Framework|],
which once an artifact generated using that project template gets added to the "embedded binaries"
section of a depending app (ie: Cordova app), Xcode has issues doing its thing because they
were not built with the iOS 8 framework magic in it.
> I suggest that the new behavior be the default (ie: add it to the embedded binaries section)
but provide an option when declaring the framework dependency in {{plugin.xml}} so that we
can override the behavior and specify whether or not we want it to the embedded (at that point
the old <=5.2.0 behavior should take over, ie: just add it to the list of framework dependencies
but not the the embedded binaries section of the project), may I suggest:
> {{<framework custom="true" embed="false"/>}}
> as the optional override (being assumed as {{true}} by default)?
