Bug Description

During snapping Nuvola Player, I have found out that snapcraft, unlike Flatpak, doesn't export DBus service files. As a result, DBus-activatable applications are not supported.

Example: https://github.com/fenryxo/snapcraft-issues/tree/master/dbus-app
Upstream doc: https://wiki.gnome.org/HowDoI/DBusApplicationLaunching

FYI, you may want to follow along in this thread: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/snapcraft/2016-December/001993.html. AIUI, the designs are in place and the implementation should start soon by the team working on Ubuntu Personal.
