[collectd] Plugins from more than one directory

I am finding it surprisingly difficult to work with a mixture
of plugins from different sources, specifically the normal plugins
from my Debian-packaged collectd plus my own additional/modified
ones (i.e. the BMP280 pressure sensor I wrote about a few days ago).
I'd like to be able to leave the distribution-supplied plugins
in /usr/lib/collectd/ and put my own somewhere else. (If I change
/usr/lib/collectd, bad things will happen when I upgrade the
collectd package.) But there doesn't seem to be any support for a
plugin search path; PluginDir is a single directory. It also seems
that LoadPlugin doesn't take an absolute path. I also tried various
things with symlinks, but then collectd complains that the plugin is
not a regular file.
Am I missing something? How do other people work with a mixture
of distribution-supplied and custom plugins?
