Well, as someone who already has worked on fakechroot and umockdev, I
just wanted to warn folks that it's a lot of work to get it running

We haven't talked about test metadata in snap packages so far, but
once we have a test metadata format (probably very similar to click)
and a snap package has tests, it can surely be detected.
