vibe.d is usable as a library but it's also an application framework to 
make development of small applications more comfortable/efficient. The 
problem with database drivers and such is that they typically use 
standard blocking sockets for communication. This does not mix well with 
vibe's internal non-blocking I/O and would block the whole application. 
For this reason such drivers need to be slightly adjusted to use vibe's 
socket funtions instead. Not ideal from a maintainance viewpoint but a 
necessary price to pay for performance..
