Currently only the dmd compiler and Linux platform are supported... but obviously we want to get all the other platforms/compilers as time goes on. I'm guessing at the current rate of porting we'll be done in about half a year.

I already mentioned this deeper down in the thread, but what are the
chances of being able to use tango as an add-on for phobos2? Something
from which I could pull in only the tango modules I need and use phobos
for the rest?
