A reasonable decision if you assume that's the only thing you 
want to do.
Vibe and dub share this philosophy. The author(s) assumed those 
are the only use cases and nothing else flies.
Like for e.g. you can build a D application that uses a C library 
with D glue code and compile the files together in 1 go with GCC, 
maybe with LDC, too, but I haven't tried.
something like: gcc main.d dglue.d clib.c clib.h
But this doesn't work with dub, or at least it didn't work the 
last time I tried a year or so ago.
I'm not a fan of the "The one true way" philosophy.

I forgot that I got it some time ago, never really got around to 
take a look however. Thanks for the reminder :)

Those are the only reason why I didn't throw it out, yet. Maybe 
it will make up for some of the initial frustration :)
