you know what? I have no idea what I was thinking about when writing my
Indeed, the AppImageKit project provides the appimagetool binary, which
is not unreasonable to require to be installed when someone wants to
create an AppImage. The appimage QBS module could use a Probe to locate
it, or allow the user to specify its location.

My biggest concern was with the CPU architecture, as I was assuming (I
didn't have an internet connection when I was thinking about this) that
the AppImageKit project wouldn't make binaries but for x86_64; this is
not the case, and binaries exist for all the most popular architectures.
