Once Tango is ported to D2, then Tango/Phobos should get along just fine (as 
long as you use D2). That's largely what druntime was all about.

If you grab the Tango+DMD bundle from the Tango site, then it's exactly the 
same as installing DMD/Phobos: Just unzip, set path, and run.

Installing Tango overtop an existing DMD/Phobos can be tricky (at least from 
what I recall, been a long time since I attempted it), but the Tango+DMD 
bundles are easy and upgrading the DMD from an existing Tango+DMD bundle 
installation is fairly easy too.
