in general, the question of how to "enrich" a build artifact is an 
unsolved problem. I think https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QBS-5 
is referring to this issue as well.
But for your case, why not just use cpp.installNamePrefix?

I don't think so. Can you give an example project where you do that 
which works with qbs 1.2 but not wit 1.3?
