IMO this is one of the most important parts of the first five 
minutes with the language. Someone has installed the compiler, 
and now they want to test it out. If they have a bad experience 
with Dub, they will not continue with the language. A package 
manager, including the choice of format, is something you have to 
get right. Rust understands this.
