I think there have been many actual complaints made in detail in this
thread.

There is always a reason to replace, because you can build on what has
gone before and do better. CMake is part of the problem.

No problem, and I guess you'll be happy to carry on using Dub after
something new and better appears. In the case of Maven → Gradle, many
people still use Maven even though it is provably inferior to Gradle
simply because they cannot be bothered to change.

Why should Dub remain the one true way? Just because it was the first
doesn't mean it is the best.
