Comment (by sysrqb):

 After a few more days with this, and chatting with some Mozilla devs, I
 made some more progress on this. In the short term, we can bundle tor-
 launcher as a system add-on and it should (mostly) just-work. This will
 require a small patch in tor-browser.git for adding the new directory into
 the moz build system, and tor-browser-builder won't build tor-launcher
 independently anymore. This ticket is still relevant for merging build
 config into tor-launcher.git.

 I found Mozilla introduced some breaking changes over the last few
 releases [0][1], so I patched those in TL, as well. Currently system add-
 ons do not work on android, so I opened a ticket (with a patch) for

 The current tor-launcher patch branch is enhancement25260 [3]

 It creates a features extension. The trickiest part of this desktop and
 android expect the features/ directory in different locations. On desktop,
 is it browser/features/ but on mobile it's only features/. I created a
 build-time variable that defines in which directory the extension should
 be stored, then I set DIST_SUBDIR as the correct location.
