I should have said that your point is mostly correct, just that this is 
a bad example :)

I've looked for ORM on, and never found one yet that I 
liked. So the answer would take infinite seconds to complete.

But let's say we put ORM into Phobos. Certainly, it would get heavy use, 
but I would be likely to believe that it would not cover the problem 
space completely, and leave quite a bit to be desired.

I think that there are some things that can go into the standard library 
and live there happily. There are other things that should be left to 
the community, even though they are essential, simply because locking 
into one implementation/API/idea is too restrictive.
