We need to get the build folder to the point where it can be wiped out and recreated. I believe android_native_refactor has support for use the platform directory. Determine what's the best way to accomplish this so we require no files to be versioned in build/android

    For iPhone builds, a custom Info.plist can be placed in the main directory (alongside the tiapp.xml, so above the build directory). This seems to work reasonably well, and doesn't interfere with version control or management of the build directories in my project.

    in the android_native_refactor branch there is a platforms directory. It seems to me that it would be appropriate to put those files in their platform dir instead of polluting the top level directory.
