This is exactly the argument to get a database driver (mysql,postgres...) and probably a webserver in std.

Absolutely not! Please...

IMHO, what needs to be in std are just APIs (modules, interfaces, declarations)... Leave the implementations elsewhere please. Standard library is already too large for my taste!

What should be in std are just core stuff that is needed everywhere.

However, the REFERENCE IMPLEMENTATIONS of these APIs could be, and in fact SHOULD be, in a set of higher-level implementation libraries that should be developed by the D Foundation, and available on the dlang.org for downloads. (part of some kind of Standard Library Suite)
