this is how nodejs and other unix-y projects do things

we've made no commitment on the plugin api (its never been official)
so I don't feel we're breaking any promises

you can get a sense of the roadmap here

the general consensus is that this year we remove everything from
phonegap api wise, plugin all the things, and then have officially
supported plugins in addition to community ones. this work is a part
of that effort. not pretty, but worthwhile in the long run.

with conditional compilation of plugins anyone can compose a version
of cordova suited to their project goals. plus, things should be
lighter and more performant, in addition to having a better security

(though w/ an avg hello world weighing in at 20kb and a bridge that
gets 200 operations/second I've not seen a convincing argument
