The people you have seen are clearly not Pythonistas. This may be by
dint of their teachers/lecturer/tutors/mentors not actually
understanding Python and its culture.

OK, in which case I infer the teachers/lecturers/tutors/mentors really
do not understand Python, and should learn more themselves as a matter
of urgency and professionalism.

I disagree (hence my comment about displacement). I think we should fix
the Dub issues and the relationship between Dub, GDC, LDC, DMD,
druntime and Phobos. To use Phobos as a "hack" to solve the problem in
the short term will be a disservice to D in the medium to long term.
