Use NativeScript to generate iOS and Android platform native 'Visual Studio Code' App

Since 'Visual Studio Code' is wrote in TypeScript / Javascript, the 'Visual Studio Code' source code is almost everything needed for NativeScript to compile it into both iOS and Android Apps. As such the current 'Visual Studio Code' source code could be a sub folder / project / git submodule to a NativeScript solution that wraps the code and fills any gaps that need to be addressed for it to work as a NativeScript solution.

This will enable 'Visual Studio Code' development on tablets and pads, allow developers to have 'Visual Studio Code' and NativeScript development on a smaller device for mobile computing purposes, and increasing access for people without full computers / laptops to computer programming tools.
