>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: cordova-common
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.1
>            Reporter: Ibrahim M. Ghazal

> Currently, {{<config-file>}} can only *add* an XML element to a config file, but
not *remove* an element. {{<edit-config>}} can remove attributes from an element, but
not whole elements.
> I'd like the ability to remove elements by adding something to {{config.xml}} instead
of writing a hook.
> This is useful because some plugins include extra permissions which are not always needed
(For example, {{cordova-plugin-file}} adds the {{WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE}} permission, but
not all apps that include {{cordova-plugin-file}} will actually write outside their data directory).
> Example syntax:
> {code}
> <config-file mode="remove" parent="/manifest" target="AndroidManifest.xml" xmlns:android="">
>     <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
> </config-file>
> {code}
> (Note the {{mode="remove"}}, the default if absent should be "add")
