Good thing we are not doing that.  Fedora is not going to neither throwing
away repositories or start bundling libraries.  Sandboxed applications will
be provided by upstream directly and not by the distribution and they may
or may not choose to bundle libraries.  Users already use a variety of
installation tools outside the distro repo model (language specific tools
like pip for example).  This is just another choice for certain use cases.
