Bug description:
  Snaps have a concept of "interfaces" which allows access to various system 
resources to be "connected" to snaps. While the majority of interfaces for 
desktop apps are connected, there are some that are not. There is no graphical 
method to connect these in the Ubuntu desktop (they can be connected from the 
command line).

  [Test Case]
  1. Open GNOME Software
  2. Select the GNOME Characters snap (installed by default)

  Expected result:
  Information is shown about interfaces this snap uses and there is a method to 
control this. In the implementation this is done with a "Permissions" button 
(beside "Launch") and a dialog with switches to control this.

  Observed result:
  No interface information is shown, so the home interface cannot be 

  [Regression Potential]
  The change is quite large and had to be restructured from the version that is 
shipped in Bionic. With such a large amount of code there is the potential for 
new bugs.
