Ok, this maybe could be the way to go. Adapting little libraries isn't a problem, and it probably makes your program better. This defeats collisions, useless code and is ok for autoloading. But this approach will work only if our libraries will be small enough. For now this is ok.

Duplicating libraries isn't a problem: disk space for ease of development is an exchange which is getting more and more convenient.

For autoloading: the interpreter/compiler could load all .arc files in current directory (or current-directory/lib), or scan them for function definitions (without loading them) and making elisp autoload automatically for every function. I prefer the first option.
