If it's a JS library, you can avoid loading it repeatedly by correctly
using the wp_enqueue_script function to load it.
However, regardless of this, I don't see any way to do what he asked
with the repository and the automatic update stuff. The whole point is
that the plugin goes into one sub-folder of the plugins folder. With
four different plugins, you've got four different folders.
