That's awesome, I really hope it helps to improve the software distribution
on all Linux distros. Now it would be great to have snapcraft as a snap
package too, so that's easy also to package software in other distros as

One note too, the tutorial should not assume the user to be on Ubuntu
16.04, but *just* to have the latest snapd package installed in his/her
favourite distibution ;)
