That's a question for the snapd folks (as that's where the `environment`
feature is actually implemented). I will say that running a script
before running the app is not quite the same as defining environment
variables since a script can do whatever it wants (it may have nothing
to do with the environment). In my opinion, a keyword called
`environment` is probably not the best place for such a feature.
