Motivation for this change

As promise, i follow @tilpner review on #81833 .
I also simplify the script removing -w option and fix arguments passing that was missing when using the appimage in a wrapAppImage (i missed to test this use case).
I've integrate #60381 idea since no activity there, test it with minetime, zulip ... seems good.

appimage-exec = substituteAll {

It's best to be explicit about the dependencies and add it to the function parameters instead.
