> I would like to use a different value for the binary filenames (.ipa/.apk) and the app
display name. Currently <name> in config.xml is used for both.
> If I set <name> to the value I want for the binary name, I have to manually edit
app_name in res/values/strings.xml and CFBundleDisplayName in *-Info.plist.
> On the other hand, if I set <name> to the value I want for the display name, I
can manually rename the binaries, but the iOS .ipa file still contains an .app file with the
display name, and CFBundleExecutable still has the display name.
