Crosswalk + io.litehelpers.cordova.sqlite gives issue uploading apk to play store

I am working on a project using localforage for offline storage that has a dependancy of io.litehelpers.cordova.sqlite. This appears to be creating directories for all CPU types within the armv7.apk/lib and x86.apk/lib directories that are created by crosswalk, which has the effect of causing google play to think that the app is compiled for all CPUs.

I can get around this by manually removing the directories but would like to find an automated solution.

I suspect this is related to this bug with the sqlite plugin.

The workaround given is to use androidDatabaseImplementation: 2 when opening the database.
