Nobody else seems to have an opinion on this? It's feature freeze today,
so as there doesn't seem to be anyone maintaining this delta, I propose
to remove the deb and I'll file a bug accordingly. Users who upgrade to
Lunar will be able to switch to the (non-Ubuntu-published) snap

I'll also link to this thread from the relevant bugs. If someone wants
to prepare and maintain a deb that switches to the snap on a user-opt-in
basis only, then I don't see an issue with reintroducing the deb with
that function, though it would be up to the Release Team after feature
