one review manager for both libraries, even if there are seperate review
as far as I know the review manager isn't bound to the "votes" anyway, so he
should be able to summarize all the problems people see in either library and
suggest a way to address those, be it by accepting one of the two libraries,
merging them, or rejecting both.
