[bldg-sim] eQUEST: Mutliple loops per central plant equipment

I'm trying to use eQuest to compare centralized vs. decentralized plant
options, and I'm running into a problem because you cannot assign
multiple loops to a single piece of central plant equipment. My model
contains 4 buildings and the three basic plant options are:
1. Decentralized: Water Source Heat Pumps with a loop at each
building. Cooling tower and boiler at each building.
2. Semi-decentralized: Water Source Heat Pumps with a loop at each
building. Boiler at each building, central cooling tower.
3. Centralized: Centralized chilled water plant serving 4 pipe
FCUs. Central cooling towers and boilers.
Option 1 is straightforward to model, but I need to assign a single
cooling tower to four loops for Option 2. Is this possible? The pump
heads for the loop and equipment pumps vary greatly between the options,
so I really need to be able to specify these building loops
