Why doesn't Libertine use snapd-confine instead of creating an LXC container?

Asked by Oxwivi on 2016-10-29

As far as I understand, snapd creates an infrastructure to contain each snaps based on a single OS snap. Instead of creating LXC containers, can't Libertibe reuse snapd-confine to run apt/dpkg within? Currently, it needs to install dependencies and separately update the entire OS that may already available on the host system. If snapd-confine allows access to host root, only the deb packages's files need to be isolated while it can reuse dependencies already installed on the underlying system.

I've received an answer on #ubuntu-libertine. snapd uses an RO rootfs, Libertine containers need RW.
