So I just tried to implement this, but it's to early to access the config.
I get an com::sun::star::uno::DeploymentException when using
officecfg::Office::Common::Misc::ExperimentalMode::get() and the "real"
SvtMiscOptions::IsExperimentalMode() is in svtools, which itself depends on vcl,
so I can't use that either.

I really don't want to start parsing LO config options in some manual way in the
plugin loader. I was hoping for a simple solution (two lines of code currently),
but here we are / I am.

IMHO that leaves us with:
1. don't allow to load the qt5 plugin in 6.2 at all
2. switch qt5 to cairo in 6.2 only
3. cope with the eventual bug fallout, when 6.2 becomes still (which I think
won't be large, but who knows)

Honestly I would go with 3. Eventually even 2.

Something for next week?
Other opinions and options?


P.S. and if kde5 doesn't make it into still, qt5 will be gone too.
