How about we have a D library infrastructure such that Phobos gets smaller and smaller providing only absolutely necessary core things over druntime. If the Python, Rust, Go, etc. stories tell us anything, it is that the days of "batteries included" distributions is long, long dead. DVCS changes the game. Phobos the library needs to go to be replaced by a library search and use system. Oh we already have one, Dub. The strategy should be "get rid of anything in Phobos that can be put out as a separate library". -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.win...@ekiga.net 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: rus...@winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
