Union "snapshots" provide a traditional request/response mechanism for retrieving data on demand from Union Server. Snapshot data is not automatically synchronized with Union Server; instead snapshots are updated only when Orbiter's updateSnapshot() method is called (i.e., via "client pull" rather than "server push").

For an automatically synchronized list of accounts on Union Server, use AccountManager's watchForAccounts() method (not shown in this example) instead of AccountListSnapshot.
