In Firefox 51, we have landed Embedded Extensions. These allow you to
embed a WebExtension inside an SDK or bootstrapped add-on. This is ideal for:
* migrating user data from legacy add-ons towards WebExtensions
* accessing new WebExtensions APIs from legacy add-ons

You can find more information here:

Big thanks to Luca, Kris and Will for landing this. Please give it a
try and give us feedback in dev-addons at mozilla.org or in Bugzilla
under Toolkit > WebExtensions: Untriaged.
