(was: So (since I brought it up on the last hangout!), I created a PoC plugin that generates
a launch storyboard for iPad Pro support. I've uploaded it to [].
It's very much a work in progress -- I'm sure there are a lot of edge cases I haven't considered,
and the code isn't beautiful by any stretch of the imagination either. But so far, it seems
to be a promising start.

That said, I'm not entirely sure about the direction I'm going, though -- the launch storyboard
has to apply to all devices, orientations, and viewport sizes, so it's conceptually different
from the device-specific and orientation-specific launch images Cordova already supports.
But I'm having a hard time coming up with a way that works with launch storyboards and _is_
device specific, since the whole point of launch storyboards is to be more generic and to
use auto layout. As such, the image I'm using is actually _square_, and the plugin currently
just scales it up using aspect fill, which means image resizing and potential difficulty with
the cropping that occurs with all possible viewports.

I suppose another option is to just provide support for moving a launch storyboard around,
and leave it up to the dev to create the storyboard itself. But that requires dropping into
an IDE (Either Xcode, Xamarin, etc.), which feels a bit antithetical to the CLI world.

Thoughts, ideas, comments?)
