Yes, it provides a similar experience like macOS app bundles.

What linuxdeployqt definitely must offer is copying libs, plugins, 
asssets etc. into a staging area like the other *deployqt tools.

Maybe creating AppImage packages is - like the creation of packages like 
RPMs - a job for tools like cpack, and we shouldn't bother with it in 
linuxdeployqt.  Even though the code already exists out there.

Creation of flatpaks and snaps are way out of scope.
