A specter is haunting the GNU/Linux ecosystem: the specter of per-user containerization. Software like Flatpak and Snappy promise fully sandboxed GNU/Linux application bundles (instead of merely launching an application with fewer privileges but without hiding the operating system, like Bubblewrap or Firejail do). Bundles ship with the version of their dependencies which they need.
Ubuntu is doing something similar it seems https://bregmatter.wordpress.com/2016/07/04/x11-applications-and-unity-8/
This is for their non-deb (deb-less?) distro version, they install debs in containers, each getting their own XMir server. Good for non-trustworthy or exposed apps.
