Just a off-topic question (maybe in the future of EL less off-topic); 
Does the concept of flatpak make updates in general more complicated 
(e.g. security issues in libraries)? The centralized concept of "shared 
libraries" does support by design the elimination of issues with "one" 
update. The flatpak approach implies that "every" flatpak packaged 
software must be updated individually, right? I hope that i got it right?
