The thread where a snap packager condescendingly talks about "good" and "bad" design while not recognizing that packaging the app in a way that requires a workaround to even use it in a most straightforward way renders all his points moot. Nobody cares about design if the app doesn't work. (Oh, but it works for *him*, so it's fine.)
And yes, it just means `snap` simply isn't a good packaging tool for system/developer software. In which case I'd like its maintainers to recognize this fact and answer questions accordingly instead of trying to educate people about "design". And don't install dev tools via snap by default. Thankfully, `apt` is still here and works.
