I don't know what you do with your bash code but 95% of my bash code is
in libs and all of that is reused.

1. If is possible to pass array names function, and you can even modify
them, though I find it rarely if ever necessary to do so.

2. Even if I were to accept your premise that no lib functionality is
possible without being able to pass array by reference to a function. a
lib would still make sense as an opus, a body of reference if you will
how standard operations should be  done in a shell.
