(Whiteboard: [ft:conndevices])

Hybrid Widget Approach means homescreen has more power and responsibilities. A homescreen app may manage and host widgets within itself no longer needing system app's support, unlike 2-layered widget approach (bug 983001). All apps opened by homescreen app are still managed and hosted by system app.

We will create the hybrid widget approach for TV first and support phone version if the resource available.

Limitations of This Approach
* Users cannot have multiple instances of the same widget with different configurations (need new API support)
* A widget cannot open new screen, excepting using mozApps.getSelf().launch()
