Great news.

As I mentioned on lgo I am happy to help by hosting any needed glue code
in gnome-tweak-tool (for example if it turns out that live extension
loading/installing/enabling via firefox is not feasible).

Without wanting to sound rude, but before committing too much effort to
this, could some of the other shell maintainers / designers please reply
with some indication that this approach, or the use of extensions in
future is something they will support? The feedback has not been
universally positive thus far.
