Details

We have logic for homescreen shortcuts to always open in the same tab, but that doesn't apply to pages that were open *before* they became a homescreen shortcut.

Let's see if we can convert a page into a special pinned page when it gets added to your homescreen.
Somewhat related: we lose the "pinned" state on restart: Bug 1249318.

IIRC (I had a brief look at this code) we rely on setting an "appOrigin" to find the previously opened tab, and this is only set when you open a new tab from a homescree shortcut (but not in any other scenario).
No longer blocks: progressive-apps
