Because Windows installers can't do sane dependencies it doesn't mean it has to be a feature of all installers. I don't see why we can't have an installer that retreives debs for perfect integration on a debian machine, rpm for red hat and others, a LSB one if the system is compliant and finally compile from source on other systems.
