pvpython support for plugins in .app layouts and classic unix-style layouts
This issue is about the default search path for plugins on pvpython, particularly when compiled on MacOS
It seems the standard behavior is for pvpython to look for plugins using linux-style paths (e.g.
lib/paraviewX.Y/plugins). By comparison, when ParaView is compiled as a .app, the default location for plugins is embedded in the .app (e.g.
paraview.app/Contents/MacOS/plugins is reported by Tools->Manage Plugins). Plugins installed and working correctly for ParaView thus are not seen by pvpython.
I understand the build system for ParaView master is changing, but it would be useful to enable a consistent location for plugins across paraview/pvpython and across operating systems.
