Update add-on studies in place when the recipe changes

|Details | Review|
When the add-on listed in an add-on (aka opt-out) study does not match the currently installed add-on for the study, the old add-on should be removed and replaced with the new add-on. Updating add-ons in place could cause strange effects in relation to the shield studies. We'll have to take care to not make existing studies think that the study is ending.
If my understanding on this matter is correct, we want this change in order not to lose and reuse the user study bucket when the study add-on needs adjustments or to be completely changed. I'm not sure at this point what changes are required on Normandy client side and risks involved plus I assume we'll want the changes uplifted as well? I would suggest an additional telemetry status for this change. Setting flags accordingly; Mike can you please update the tracking flags in order to reflect what versions we will target with this change?
This change won't be small, and I plan to do it as a part of a migration to a local action. Because of this, I'm not planning to request uplift for the feature.
