Re: Android Platform Global Library should really be an SDK

Ahh I see that it was in fact you who recently commented on that exact issue,
my apologies! JetBrains seem to realise this is a problem so I'm sure they'll
fix it in time. Given the relatively easy workaround though I doubt it's
the highest priority for them. In the meantime it's probably best to just
watch that issue and hope for the best.
