Another, more indirect method to merge multiple libraries:  (I'm not sure if this is
possible, can someone please confirm...)

-------------------------------------------------
create a new project.
include the wanted libraries.
make a PCB & place all components.
make a Schematic & place all components.

now, Create Project Library.

The resulting library should have everything...
------------------------------------------------------

Can this be done?
