Packaging Chromium as an extension request

Some applications may need to leverage Chromium for rendering content if pandoc isn’t sufficient, which means apps may need to do either of the following:

A) Bundle Chromium with the flatpak application
B) Call Chromium through flatpak-spawn

Here’s an example:

Having Chromium available as an extension would avoid the security issues of calling flatpak-spawn and avoid the maintenance burden of building Chromium.

Adding optional support within an app may look like this:

    version: '22.08'
    directory: chromium
    no-autodownload: true
