My understanding is that Arch doesn't have a standard mac-based security
framework enabled; if that's incorrect we'd be glad to work together to
enable full security for confined snaps on Arch!

Also, with the new 'classic' mode, there will be a range of utility
snaps that are not sand-boxed on Ubuntu either, but are still very
useful and no doubt just as useful to Arch users and developers as well.
