So, the .js knows what platform it was built for.  We should create a
marker in cordova.js, near the top, making it real obvious what platform
it's for.  Should also be machine readable.

Perhaps there's no way to do make the platform check, in one single
portable way, across platforms.  Every platform may have to do the best
they can.  Maybe checking user agent on some particular platform actually
makes sense (BUT I DOUBT IT!).

eg, for iOS, if we did as I suggest in the 1st paragraph, we could easily
check this in an Xcode build step in our template, and (I assume) force a
build failure.

And once we have the "command line tooling", maybe we can check there also.
