Hi everyone,

Justs finished initial step of better broken libs handling work, and 
pushed it as 'missing-libs' branch on our repo.

For details and plans ahead, see https://developer.blender.org/T45351.

In this branch, you should already be able to load a file with some of 
its libraries missing, edit it, save it, and, once missing libs are 
fixed and you reopen your file, you'll get your missing linked data back 
as if nothing had happened.

You can also edit broken libs path in outliner, save & reload, and done. 
Nothing lost anymore.

Next step is being able to reload a lib without having to reload the 
whole .blend file, and probably being able to 'reassign' a given linked 
data to another lib/data, etc.
