I don't think this would impact an end user app with its own plugins that
also uses Qt5 plugins. The application would have been compiled with the
paths for dlopen to search for its own plugins. And the Qt5 libraries will
be compiled with their own paths for dlopen to search in. Nothing has
linked to the Qt plugins, so there's no issue when the Qt plugin file
names change (as opposed to changing the install_name and filename for a
dylib, which would be a problem) between Qt releases if this bug is fixed.
