having each application install its own version of common libraries in its own location sounds to me like a maintenance nightmare.
Having to worry that some of the applications you have installed will break whenever you upgrade any module is also a maintenance nightmare. In the end, you should be able choose which kind of nightmare you prefer, ;-) which may depend on your situation. A user who just wants to install one blog application is not in the same situation as a webmaster maintaining several applications.
