dub is very limited tool. first: it can't do separate compilation. some of my modules, for example, do alot of CTFE things (including parsing disk files) and eating memory like crazy. there is simply no way to to batch compiles for me. besides, batch compile means that if i'll change one line in one module, dub will recompile them all, so i forced to group modules to libraries by size, not by intent. second: dub can't compile code in other languages. some of my projects includes several C modules, for example, and my build tool has no problems building that and automatically tracking dependencies. third (it's an extension of second, actually): track arbitrary dependencies and exec arbitrary tools to generate some files based on that dependencies. dub is good, but only in limited use cases. so it's almost no sense in using dub if some use cases are not suitable for it: it's way better to adapt build tool that one already using (or write his own) instead of use TWO build tools for different projects.
