Perhaps this environment variable should be set by snapd package ?  
  I think this could be surprising - because we would be hiding all  squashfs filesystems from df, not just snapd ones. I think it would be  cleaner to consider that users don't generally want to see squashfs  stuff in df output by default anyway, and so hide it Ubuntu-wide.    I'm less sure about tmpfs. I can think of occasions where I have wanted  to see tmpfs usage (since it can run out, and has run out on me before).  But that's perhaps too much of a specialist case, and so I think it's  also OK to hide tmpfs by default from df on Ubuntu.  
I'm wondering if having an optarg to disconsider the environment variable would be appropriate. And sorry if that was already considered Bryce, I haven't looked into your code.
