Well, it's not really a decision, but more of a side-effect. The best
and most flexible embedding technology to use is pyxpcom. We're
embedding a Gecko engine into a different app, and this is of course not
firefox. We are not using XUL as the UI toolkit, which is likely what
most firefox addons require.
It's sort of like Epiphany. You can't put firefox addons into epiphany
because epiphany is actually native and doesn't use XUL.
We are shipping xulrunner though, so it's conceivable that whenever a
xulrunner-based FF comes out it'll just run with the xulrunner we've
got, but be completely unsugared.
