The issue is that they (the core developers) don't want Tango in any of 
the core tools and I don't feel like replacing Tango with Phobos for 
something that is working perfectly fine as it is. It's even working 
better, because it doesn't depend on libcurl which has caused a lot of 
problems. It's not even available by default on Windows.

On the other hand. I would like to rewrite DVM from scratch and add 
support for LDC and GDC as well. That could be an opportunity to remove 
that dependency on Tango, as long as no new dependencies are added, like
