Public bug reported:

This is an enhancement.

Similar to how Android has permissions, you can see which are the per
app requirements for working, and once you have installed, you can see
which permissions you gave to an app.

Right now you can only do the latter, using `snap interfaces snap_name`.

I believe it would be important to know upfront which
[Interfaces](http://snapcraft.io/docs/reference/interfaces) an app
requires upfront. I see
[snap/info.go](https://github.com/snapcore/snapd/blob/master/snap/info.go)
has info on plugs and slots. So basically the idea would be making this
information available to the user (exposed through an API) prior to
installing a snap.

** Affects: snapd (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: New


** Tags: wishlist

** Summary changed:

- Get app required interfaces in store
+ Get required Snap interfaces from store
