The full path of component library or pattern are stored with each component of a schematic. I would like having a configurable "default component library path" and a "default pattern library path". The path should be configured/memorized in each schematis and pcb.
When a componenet refer to a library that is not under the configured path, the full path would be saved.

By doing so, I can have my own libraries with versions.
One example owhere such versionning could be usefull is that I have 2 PCB manufacturers working with different rules for plated through holes. For one of them I have to provide the end diameter I want (they drill oversize) and the other one asks me to oversize my drill by 0.1mm above the hole size in the finished product.
Another situation is that I want to backup the libraries together with each of my product so i can isolate myself from future modifications in the libs and decides on a product by product when to switch to the new version.
