Alternative to custom installers with Composer 2.1+

As of Composer 2.1, the Composer\InstalledVersions class has a
method which can let you figure out at runtime which plugins/modules/extensions are installed.

It is highly recommended to use that instead of building new custom
installers if you are building a new application. This has the advantage of leaving
all vendor code in the vendor directory, and not requiring custom installer code.
