I have a enhancement for dub in my mind, which would also solve
your issue. Similiar to setup.py in python you would be able to
define an entry point in dub.json.
Command `dub install mypackage` would create a batch file/bash
script with name foo containing the command `dub run
mypackage:subPackageName -- %*`.
Unfortunately I do not have any time to work on this.
