What about an installer? This seems quite sensible to me, and useful

of overwriting, warning about versions, etc.

Certainly better than the cost of checking quarks at runtime... :(

How would this work in Linux?

That's a good question!

I imagine either they're building from source, or using a package management system (i.e. Debian) anyway? Could that be configured to put the quarks in the right place? Linux users as a species do tend to be a little bit more savvy about tech stuff, command lines, etc. Another option would be a script to install them.

Also there's a platform issue, as I imagine outside of the situations described, people may need to build UGen plugins for linux themselves. Imagine Linux on PPC for instance...
