Is there a way to share LotusScript libraries across DBs?

I will be starting on a big Lotus Notes project where I'll be doing lots of development. Is there a way of sharing LotusScript libraries across databases? How? If not, what is the best way I could share my LS resources? (The idea of LSS files lying somewhere in an OS folder isn't too pleasing. Is it the only way?)
I have used a common template file to function in the same way an LSS file does. Create a template file that has the code and libraries you want to share, then, in each database you create, copy the libraries into the database. If you change the libraries in the template, all applications using those libraries will be updated when the design refresh process runs. If you use this method, be sure that your library routines function like black boxes -- keep them loosely coupled from other code so changing the library code doesn't impact how the applications run.
