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.
