Yes, we're untangling the confinement logic at the moment, so for now
drop plugs and slots from classic snaps. The intent, though, is that you
can add them safely and test with --jailmode as part of your journey to
strict confinement.

--jailmode is the opposite of --devmode, it lets you impose the
confinement with plugs and slots in cases (like --classic) where that
confinement would not automatically be imposed.
