As far as I know Flatpak only targets GNU/Linux, and at the moment
only targets a handful of distros. I make software for not only
GNU/Linux but also Windows, FreeBSD and macOS. I use many libraries
including GTK+. I don't know yet if or how these changes will impact
me, all I know is that the way things are right now works just fine
for me.

I'm worried that we're breaking things that already work for lots of
us in order to fix inconveniences that some people have. I don't want
to drastically change the way I make and distribute software just
because one of the many libraries that I use has decided to do things
differently. If things need to change then do whatever is necessary
but please, let the old stuff also continue to work.
