macdeployqt has been chasing after which plugins to deploy ever since it started to support deploying plugins. 

What we need is a per-platform default plugin list for each module. This list should be maintained by the module maintainer. MODULE_PLUGIN_TYPES is a start, perhaps we can use something similar for specific plugins.
