Allow developers to integrate individual components of NativeScript UI

As requested by a community member, it would slim down the app size if a developer could pick and choose which components s/he wants to use in an app. If, for example, the user ONLY wanted to use the calendar, then perhaps that could be specified via the CLI on installation, sort of like what we do with the Firebase plugin where the user can choose to use elements of the plugin and those choices are saved to a firebase.json file as preferences. Allowing the developer to integrate only parts of the UI package would also prevent permissions problems we've seen in the past, where users' apps are rejected after uploading to the app store as various permissions do not match the included package files.
