Keep in mind that D language seems designed for its parts to be 
minimal (this means "the simplest thing that works"), and that 
the D module system is not yet fully implementing its current 
simple design.

In past I have asked for those "Entry points" (that it's an 
unsolved problem in D), and I appreciate those "Exports". The 
versioning too seems useful.
