Just tested it. Nice GUI. Claims to work o.k. but the Fairphone 2 doesn't boot Ubuntu Touch (only its recovery tool).

Seems as if the ubports website wasn't up to date: https://github.com/ubports/ubports.com/issues/53 insinuates that CPT has just been discontinued. ubports-installer seems to be a problem, too: https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/issues/39. So at the moment the above-mentioned magic-device-tool seems to be the only option. Bad!

Would that be difficult to package?

Greetings, Joe
