It seems to me that how a Qt app is actually packaged/deployed is
out-of-scope of a linuxdeployqt tool.

It seems macdeployqt actually build bundles, but windeployqt just copy
files next to the .exe file.
IMHO a linuxdeployqt should just copy files, like windeployqt. Given the
number of way to package apps under Linux, the actual packaging should be
left to other tools.
