I was going to suggest it, but I ended up thinking it was obscure enough that 
for anyone who really needs it, they can use 

`qtpaths6 --binaries-dir`/qtplugininfo

Ditto and even less likely to be used.

True, but it also sounds very limited. It sounds like an example application 
that is quite useful for the limited scenarios where it can be used. Like my 
cbordump tool too. Ditto for pixeltool.

I'd suggest that qdbusviewer and qdbus be moved out of the Qt repositories and 
made separate releases of their own. They use private API, but so do a lot of 
KDE applications and frameworks. But we can think about that later.
