To do that you first need to split the current repository where each lib
has its own repository... making point 2 impossible or just too painful.

Your workflow would be possible in a simple manner once we moved to git/hg
where each lib has its own repository, which would be better imho (have
lib-specific history instead of history from all the libs).
