The easiest solution would be to port the missing plugins to KF/Qt5.

Speaking for the kphotoalbum developers, we can talk to the digikam people in 
very much the same way as you can as a user. In a sense, I think it would 
probably be better if "regular" users bring this up with the digikam people.

Talking worst case scenarios:
If nobody of the original plugin authors is willing to port the necessary 
plugins to Qt5, we can probably get it done. Maintainership is an entirely 
different problem, though (in case nobody noticed, we don't have that many 
developers lying around here...)
