When I wrote it (and the docs) it was only run with `snap set`. I believe
it's been modified since then to run upon initial install as well as
upgrade; indeed Gustavo mentioned that it should serve as an install and an
upgrade hook. The docs weren't updated with this change, it seems. That
recommendation should also be documented.
