Snap and Flatpak both are different takes on what we already have with AppImage.
The goal of AppImage was to have fewer builds to worry about. And it brilliantly does that.
So unless there is something that is a) better and b) completely replaces AppImage, I'm 
not sure why we'd spend time on it.

The share of Linux users in our overall user base has been declining for years. Admittedly,
my data there is not necessarily correct as it relies on connections to the update server,
but I think it's a reasonable indication of rough orders of magnitude.
