I've run in to a problem when trying to create a common scraper addon.
I've modified the IMDb scraper so that it is able to lookup Rotten Tomatoes for ratings. It is completely possible for me to put all my custom functions inside my scraper.xml but for convenience and perhaps for the benefit of others (who may wish to add Rotten Tomatoes ratings to their own scrapers) I'd like to create a common scraper with the ratings functions that I have created available.
However, even though I've created the metadata.common.rt.com addon on my test system scraping fails because of the reference to my common library. If I move the referenced functions inside the main scraper then it works fine.
Is there a limitation on external users providing common scraper functions?

none what so ever. you probably forgot to update addon.xml or the likes. also mind the slightly different xml syntax for scraper libraries.
