One itunes library to rule them all, and one library to bind them.....

Macbook and Mac mini server. Both have itunes libraries pointed at an external drive on the mini-server. No problem. My iPhone is backed up to the Macbook. I add music to libraries from both computers. How can I point all my itunes installs to not only one folder, but to all share and update one itunes library.itl file?

The easy answer is to just home share everything off the mini and change the phone to backup to the server. But I'd really rather keep the phone associated to the Macbook, for travel and whatnot. I want all my music installs to only update one library. As of now, I'm just copying them back and forth whenever one file is newer than the other.
There's got to be a better way, no? Or is there a server function I have not yet discovered?
Not necessarily, I guess, it IS itunes....
