Review comment:
       Tested on a v27 emulator and on a v29 device, it works; Thanks!
   I think that this feature will be used a lot to expose the height in a CSS variable, and
I think that it might make sense to expose it directly in the plugin. I'm currently setting
the CSS variable like this:
   const onSuccess = (height: number): void => {
     const roundedHeight = Math.ceil(height);
     if (isNaN(roundedHeight)) {'--cordova-status-bar-height', '0px');
       console.warn('Failed to determine the StatusBar height.')
     } else {'--cordova-status-bar-height', `${height}px`);
   And in CSS:
   .my-toolbar-container {
       padding-top: calc(8px + var(--cordova-status-bar-height));
   But in order for this to work properly in all cases, the CSS variable value needs to be
updated on each screen orientationchange. Because, in some cases, the StatusBar height depends
on the height of the screen notch and if you rotate the screen, then the status bar height
might be different depending if you have a notch or not.
   It would be nice if the user could just set a:
   <preference name="StatusBarHeightCSSVariable" value="true" />
   In order to use a CSS variable directly, without having to write any JS in order to fetch
the height and to subscribe to the screen orientation changes.
