Comment (by sysrqb):

 Replying to [comment:32 sysrqb]:
 > I'm worried about only using a pref for deciding if the app should
 update itself or something else installs updates (such as an app store).
 Although it seems Google are not currently enforcing this, Google Play's
 policy says apps should not be able to update themselves - so having a
 toggle-able pref seems risky.
 I take this back, I think we can accomplish this without much risk (Google
 Play's only says we can't update the app, but it doesn't say the app must
 not be capable of updating itself). #26528 may give us what we need for
