Auto-connecting the joystick interface for the chromium snap

This is a request to auto-connect the joystick interface for the chromium snap.
It has recently been pointed out to me that this interface was needed to enable playing stadia games in chromium with a joystick. Auto-connecting it would make the process even smoother for end-users.

Sorry for the delay on this, it was misfiled since it used the ‘store’ category instead of ‘store-requests’.

I’m somewhat conflicted about this since obviously we want to allow joysticks for games that are snaps, but chromium is not a game itself. I wonder if there is a way to use snapctl is-connected joystick and let the user know. Can you comment on if there is an acceptable UX around this? @reviewers - what do others think?
