also ... while in deb packages you will have a guarantee what the
"libz.so.1.2.3.4" binary contains, how will you know that the 8474583754
returned "libz.so.1.2.3.4" form a

"snap-file find libz.so.1.2.3.4"

is actually returning info about the same binary ?

some snaps might use libz.so.1.2.3.4 from a binary deb from the archive,
others might build upstream without any patches and others again might
build upstream with patches, all binaries your file search would be
named libz.so.1.2.3.4 but you will not actually know if their binary
content is identical ... how would "snap-file search..." know *which*
binary libz.so.1.2.3.4 you actually want to find ...
