I'm not sure why you point this out. No one is arguing that it 
is. On the other hand, it does many things better already.

stdx-allocator [1] is not "stdlib" and not meant to be part of 
Phobos (the opposite actually). It's a fork of the code in Phobos 
made with the obvious intention of doing things differently than 
Phobos. If you want to use Phobos, then... use Phobos :D

Actually, mir-core is not a dependency of stdx-allocator in 
general, just in V3. You can still use the 2.77.z branch which 
doesn't have any dependencies [2]. Many projects do use it.
