How can I change an add-on's _execute_browser_action command?

The only supported method in the commands API is 'getAll'.

Chrome supports 'chrome://extensions/configureCommands' which lets the
add-on user set each installed add-on's startup key.

This doesn't look supported in Firefox. Is there a roadmap to either provide
a commands.update method (signature: command name, object payload),
or build a page like Chrome has?

After being around for 8 years, Tabhunter users have expected to be able
to set their preferred keyboard shortcut for launching it. Is there a better
alternative to crafting a custom manifest.json for each user?
