      This is because of GateKeeper:

      We don't want to go into the hassle of signing a .pkg binary.

      This is less of a Cordova concern since we ship the source, but our makefile should not create a proprietary installer but just install what is needed (no one reads the notices in the installer anyway!)

      Since we are already requiring devs to use the command line to create new projects, requiring them to run an install script is not a problem.
