New feature: imporant missing option for use of Libraries: access to the file path where library is read from.
In Outliner, choose new view mode "Libraries". A ctrl+clik on the library name then allows to change the file name or path. Note that when you change the file name, nothing is being re-read or re-linked. Only after saving the .blend file and reading it bak the new library is used.
This feature allows to cleanup library usage. You can make files relative, or reorganize a project. Just keep in mind that you cannot use this feature to fix .blend files that link to non-existing other files. That because the lost data is actually not read at all, so cannot be saved either.
Currently, library errors are only printed in the console... quite important to keep trak of when using Libraries.
Implementation note: this Outliner view mode can become expanded to a full "Database view", showing something similar as SHIFT+F4 databrowse does now.
