There are many scenarios where one would like to have a plugin's folder symlinked to another location.
A couple of these scenarios are described in #13550
The reason this is not currently possible is because plugin_basename() doesn't know how to handle symlinks.
The most simple and most flexible solution is to make the plugin basename filterable, leaving individual devs to set it up according to their environment.
