I completely agree on this point.
I've been writing and maintaining a synth editor program in the last 4
years, and despite I use Linux and develop it there, I gave up on creating
a packaging for it (mostly because 99% of users are on MacOS and Windows),
so I decided to keep the project structure in a way that it can be run
directly from the a repository clone.
Luckily, Qt allows us to keep a decent level of consistence between all
platforms and I don't need nor want platform specific features. But, yeah,
Linux packaging is often a mess.
