What are your thoughts on Simulink libraries that link to themselves? They seems to break quite often as you are developing them making me think this is a bad idea. They break when you rename the library which just seems silly.
Everything is ok:
I break the link by moving the linked block:
Lastly, I change the library's name from "Example" to "Example1" and the link breaks.
Attached is the Example simulink file.

I don't like this behavior. I think it is troublesome and easy to break. I am a blockset author and I don't see how this is good practice for maintainability. It is just to easy to break.
Instead make another library of components that repeatedly used. The links to this are much easier to maintain.
