It would be useful to have a way to override the Info.plist location.

Maybe a per-configuration option, or use the use the bundle resource name mapping mechanism, so that it can be moved to a resource directory and use the LogicalName metadata.

Xcode provides this functionality as part of their "Packing" build settings (http://screencast.com/t/zJwRrN0wXi), so it'd be nice to optionally set a Info plist location (the default could just be info.plist or namespace-info.plist) and you can modify that for different configurations, so you could have a different identifier for different Lite/Full builds etc -
