Well, it didn't quite go as planned. I found another bug (so we're at
0.7.4) and also the snapcraft fix didn't resolve all the issues. So
I'm temporarily using a PPA that reverts the xenial-updates of
snapcraft back to 2.35.

Kyle Fazzari is working on a proper fix, but if it's not able to get
done soon, we might back out the snapcraft SRU in xenial-updates.
