The Vivaldi browser is based on Chromium and supports most (if not all?) of the same flags.

Any time the Vivaldi browser updates, which is fairly often, I manually edit the .desktop file to add the flags required to launch Vivaldi as a Wayland client.

For Chrome, Chrome Dev and Chromium, this is *much* less of a pain, since they have chrome-flags.conf, chrome-dev-flags.conf and chromium-flags.conf, respectively.

These flag files are Arch-specific additions to the browsers. Would it make sense to also add a "vivaldi-flags.conf" to persist flags passed to the Vivaldi browser?
This task depends upon
