I don't agree here. I used Tango xml and it is far from being perfect.

Nor do I agree with this one. I have recently tried to achieve good performance with Qt's string handling and really wished that I used D. Phobos(and Tango) algorithms work with all kind of strings(mutable and immutable, UTF-8,16,32) and you don't allocate each time when you extract a sub-string. So D would actually be faster in what I was doing.
