What we need is a command line tool for doing the same. That’s how other project solve things too (nvm, rvm, pyenv, etc)

For some context:

  *   https://github.com/nvm-sh/nvm
  *   https://rvm.io/
  *   https://github.com/rbenv/rbenv/
  *   https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv
  *   https://doc.rust-lang.org/edition-guide/rust-2018/rustup-for-managing-rust-versions.html
  *   https://github.com/kylef/swiftenv

Some of these tools modify PATH on behalf of the user, while others add a custom directory to the PATH where they then swap symlinks around (which is how qtchooser works as far as I know?).

They also allow per project (local) version pinning, which can be useful.
