What would a flatpak do for me as a desktop gui user? My understanding 
is that is supposed to allow me to run packages which are not part of 
the distribution in what is so called a sandbox. but if the gui version 
of it is not accessible it would be of limited use for me. I will 
install it anyway once you make it available.
