If you have asynchronous calls that you can poll, you can make it work
with vibe.d, albeit awkwardly. (Start request, poll+yield, return when
there's a result.) If you only have synchronous calls, you'd have to
introduce IO threads and synchronization.
It's awkward to make things compatible with vibe.d and Phobos IO. The APIs
are rather dissimilar, so you can't just, for instance, have different
imports under a version() block.
