I think what you wanted to say was you don't need to have multiple copies of the same version of the same library? But i'm just guessing. If so you didn't read what i wrote. I'm saying you need multiple _versions_ of the same library. If you app needs a different version of a library thats already installed, fix your app.

I know Gobo doesn't write apps, just puts them all together. But its going in the wrong direction, many versions of the same stuff. Where as a perfect Distro would have no duplication. Thats not possible now but thats where we should be trying to get to.
