I'm having trouble understanding first why Tango had to be made mutually 
exclusive to Phobos (is it just changes to object.d? were those really 
necessary?)  and if object.d differences are the only reason, then I 
still don't really get why most Phobos code can't still be imported as 
is or with trivial changes.  For example, phobos' std.path doesn't seem 
to have any direct dependencies on the gc API or on a particular version 
of object.d.  What's the issue?
