You don't need to put anything on path to run utils from dub
packages. `dub run` will take care of setting necessary

dub fetch package_with_apps
dub run package_with_apps:app1 --flags args
These are command line utilities, along the lines of unix
'cut', 'grep', etc, intended to be used as part of unix
pipeline. It'd be less convenient to be invoking them via dub.
They really should be on the path themselves.
Sure, that would be beyond dub scope though. Making binary
packages is independent of build system or source layout (and is
highly platform-specific). The `dun run` feature is mostly
helpful when you need to use one such tool as part of a build
process for another dub package.
