    Phobos ends up battle testing every new feature and if it wasn't new
    features will be definitely shipped in a broken state. Let's not
    forget that new D frontend features still have many bugs that stay
    undetected even after testing in Phobos.

Surely the compiler should always rely on the previous compiler +
standard library versions.

Is there really a valid reason not to do this? Surely if the dog food is
so bad no one should be eating?

Anyhow I'd let compiler team decide this.
