What is the status of this?

snappy-debug was in rolling but was an ar-format snap (as are quite a few other
rolling snaps in the store). sergiusens and I got snappy-debug 0.11
squashfs-format uploaded to rolling/edge for now (which keeps 0.10 in stable
fine). For now, people can install it with:

$ sudo snappy install snappy-debug/edge

Is there a plan to nuke all the ar-format snaps in the store?
