why does flatpak keep like 5 different nvidia driver packages installed

@elomatreb it's safe to remove all the ones that don't correspond to the installed system driver version, but flatpak's support for cleaning up unneeded stuff is kind of lacking (newer versions do have a "flatpak uninstall --unused" command, iirc? but i don't think it works on nvidia driver packages.

even if it cleans up the old ones automatically tho, it still has to download the big updates occasionally :/

@kepstin @elomatreb running "flatpak repair --user" also helps cleaning up cache and recovering disk space.

@kepstin yeah, it seems to consider the nvidia packages used by something
