Maybe we could think of libraries more like "plugins" for eiffelstudio (and maybe at a later point there could even be plugins). I could imagine a dialog where I could select the libraries to download (and this would also handle dependencies).

Points to think about I see are: dependency handling, nameing schema (for dependency handling), version handling (problems like library a needs version < 2 of b and library c needs version > 2 of b)

In general it may make sense to have a look at how others have solved this problems (e.g. plugin system in eclipse, apt system in debian, ...)
