While working on #5338 (Explore app alias functionality), I was asked in snapcraft forum if we had any plans to support tracks instead of using version number in a package name.

On a quick look, tracks seems like a central feature of snap's package management design and we most likely will have to start using it.

Essentially, it is a way to catalog software using the following scheme track/risk/branch.

E.g. 9.3/stable/psql-freeze-fix

I will make some tests to get a good idea about how it works, how we could transition from the current approach and start using tracks.
