Project templates in snapcraft

Just a small proposal to have templates in snapcraft, that provide some 
sort of starting point for
people without the need to read lots of tutorials, but get started with 
their project right away.

My proposal would be to add a template engine in snapcraft, that 
generates predefined projects
or at least a predefined snapcraft.yaml for a specific use case.

Something like:

snapcraft init --template=ubuntu-touch-app , which would bootstrap a 
simple snapcraft project
targeting QML/Qt APIs.

I think that could help people to get their apps snapped even faster.
