Did you have any luck getting 'write' to work? I'm getting as far as
running my app and it failing with:

  cannot mount /snap/prov/x2 at /snap/cons/x1/test-share-target with
options bind. errmsg: No such file or directory

I'm unsure what paths I should be using. I need to get access to
$SNAP_DATA, $SNAP_USER_DATA, $SNAP_COMMON etc. to install configuration

Are there any user docs or design specs around, or is this feature being
prototyped on the fly? I can't even find anything about the plugs: stanza
in snapcraft.yaml, but that might just be a lack of Google juice.
