So if I understand correctly, my process should be:

  • -Before installing the new .sf, I should re-pack my custom library to custLib.csl
  • -Set custLib.csl as my library so that it will synchronize
  • -Install the new .sf and re-launch LDCad
  • -Re-unpack custLib and switch to that directory when I want to make more changes
I should now have all updated files, plus whatever new ones I'd made (unless they were corrections to existing files, which are now replaced with your updates). Right?

No. You'll destroy your customizations if you do that. You have have more that one shadow library. Better to have a separate shadow library that only contains your altered/added files much like is done with unofficlal parts. Then your custom lib will override the "official" Roland supplied one.
