How about reliable online updates of running applications as a
AND the ability to roll back, to choose beta or stable streams, etc.
For example, the Google Play app store, you can check a box to opt in
to beta versions of an app you're interested in following the bleeding
edge of. It'd be awesome to do that in Fedora. We *could* do that with
traditional packaging, but in practice doing it well seems like at
least as much work as the flatpak bundle approach — and we still
wouldn't get the update advantage.
