All these cases relate to two coupled libraries. Regardless of
questions about the wisdom and/or avoidability of such coupling,
these examples aren't counter examples to my main point.
In these examples, the correct action would be to checkout both
coupled libraries, switch both to develop branch and update and
run tests on those two (or three...) while leaving the other
125 libraries in master. Of course in this case they have to pushed
and merged as a pair - because they're coupled. But it doesn't
argue against my suggestion.
