Auto-connection of slots/plugs for preinstalled snaps

Hi Simon

We need two "at-boot" stories.

One is a first-boot story, things like filesystem expansion and the
device instantiation aspects of cloud-init (user creation for example).

The other is a console experience, so before there are users one can do
things like network config.

Steve, Loic and Ryan cc'd are the folks to touch base with on these fronts.
