  1. So how does one use the functionality of `getSnapshotBeforeUpdate` in a functional component instead of a class component?

  2. Is there anything special about `getSnapshotBeforeUpdate` that couldn’t be done at the top of the `componentDidUpdate` method?

    I’m not clear why `getSnapshotBeforeUpdate` was provided as a separate method from `componentDidUpdate`.
