The following idea was written by several posters:
Keep std. small, but offer a special label "recommended by D 
for some more packages available via code.dlang (DUB)

This would mean, that some of them, currently under individual 
control are moved to the official D Foundation Git repository.

So those could be kept up to date, to ensure no breakage when the 
language evolves.

( On my wish list at the top: An official D database connector. 
(MySql/MariaDB, Postgres, SQlite, MonetDB..) )

What about trying to find and to fund a maintainer for this 
(Next funding goal Mike Parker?)
