May I ask why SCons is insufficient for you?

The makers of Dub chose to invent a new build tool despite Make, CMake 
and SCons. Although it is clear Dub is the current de facto standard 
build tool for pure D codes, there is nothing wrong with alternate 
experiments. I hope we can have an open technical discussion of these 
points, it can only help all the build systems with D support.
