    OK - so you only package the libs with unstable APIs :)

(Non-guru type here again)  Would it make sense to have a
"lib" directory in each app's folder, as was suggested,
and then symlink to the actual library?  This way there
could be one actual library that is updated easily, and
still allow some apps to hold on to the older library
version by re-linking as needed.
I know I don't know enough about this to describe what I'm
thinking appropriately, but it works in my head. <g>
You should look at encap (, if i'm not mistaken). It plays 
with symlinks.
