Ship with F-Droid priviledged extension for automatic F-Droid updates

Users, who want to use private, free/libre/open-source (FLOSS) apps.
What is the target of the new feature for this user?
Easier installation, hassle-free, no need to approve installations manually. Automatic-secuity updates.
Why this user would like to use this feature?
Increase in security + priavcy (as mentioned above) and giving users the ability to decide what they want to do.
Automatic installing new apps (no need to wait for the stupid installing window). Automatically install updates. Examples
Mockups see F-Droid page, there is not a lot to see, it works in the background and that is good
