Autopackage support (binaries for Linux)

Sorry, but that's bollocks. Autopackage isn't the solution. It may be a step in the right direction (I'm not sure of that) but it certainly cannot act as the one and only distribution channel.Unless you bundle everything as static binaries (which you could do with deb/rpm as well if you wanted) it doesn't solve library dependency issues, and beyond that there's stuff like C++ ABI incompatibilties and of course different architectures.The only way to guarantee a working program is to provide native packages. Everything else is just "Try it, you might be lucky..."
