Planing for the future. I thought about mentioning changing the PATH,
but decided the user could figure that out.

Really? I figured that the only thing needed would be to
cat > /etc/xdg/qtchooser/5.conf << "EOF"
That said, I've never liked the 'alternative' scripts. It's easier to
just change the PATH.
I've also thought about making the path functions in /etc/profile
persistent. Then the qtchooser would be simply
pathremove old-qt-path; pathprepend new-qt-path
Another option would be to just change the /opt/qt symlink, but that
requires being root.
