Ideally this would be solved in a similar way as when you statically link to libraries in C - the parts of your dependency are pulled in and users don't have to worry about it. (There are other issues with this of course, but they are well understood by now that someone could develop a system to mitigate that by now)

The problem is more about the download size than the actual deployment (unless you mean using only the parts of jQuery you need, in which case I guess it would be hard to share between apps).

You're better off using the full jQuery hosted at a common CDN, since it is likely to already be cached on the user's computer.
