Configuring snapd on ubuntu core for a web proxy

I'm trying to run ubuntu core 16 in a kvm instance in an internal lab that
requires a web proxy. This bug:
seems to cover how to do this on classic ubuntu, but the files that hold
the environment variables used by snapd on an ubuntu core system are all on
read-only filesystems. How do I set HTTPS_PROXY in a persistent way for
snapd on that system?
