This needs the tooling for it to be built first.

Given that Craft already has the majority of the infrastructure for
this, i'd suggest adding appimage support to it which should then make
adding support to the Binary Factory straight forward and efficient in
terms of resource utilisation.

Existing work on Appimages has tended to be application specific and
therefore not suitable for easy reuse (which Craft would solve)
