Well, actually there is tangobos which is a compatibility lay on top of 

As for the future, I see a problem using Tango as currently it seems that 
the Tango team is not interested in working with D2. But I'm sure when it

isn't much from Walter as to what to do about it. I hope to see a good 
conclusion where there is only one library.
