Just curious to know which major open source programming 
languages support the sort of development environment you are 
suggesting for their core language/libraries.  I just checked 
Python (the most popular Open Source language of all)  and they 
use ./config make  and hg for version control .. seems pretty 
bare bones to me.

While I am sure what you are proposing would be nice, if a 
massive community like Python doesn't have time/resources to 
create such a thing, how do you propose a small community like D 
go about this?

Perhaps this is a project you could take on.

For the record, for someone to be a developer for a programming 
language, I don't think expecting them to understand the build 
system is really an issue. In fact I would feel more comfortable 
with such people contributing.
