[Development] A deployment tool for Linux

I think it's better to have a tool that does *something* with a documented, limited scope than offer nothing at all.

Then again, I know very little about shipping applications on Linux. I've either been building statically (which it turns out you still need to bundle libs that are dynamically linked like ICU) or using linuxdeployqt, and I only bother supporting Ubuntu because that's what I use.

    I, as a person, think that a "deployment tool for Linux" is 
    something that spits out packages in half a dozen "native"
    distribution package formats.
    Collecting "resources that the application uses (like [...]
    graphics, [...]" *and dependencies* would be a (important)
    step, but not all that it takes.
