btw, there is a three-year-old open issue for this:


The dub codebase isn't that big- DScanner reports 14.4 klocs- and 
Sonke's code is nicely formatted and easy to dive into.  
Everybody wants stuff in dmd, from bug fixes to new features, but 
doesn't necessarily have the compiler knowledge or bandwidth to 
decipher Walter's code.

Dub, on the other hand, is something most everybody can 
understand, and PRs would benefit the entire community.  It is 
still primarily a one-man show, despite Martin's efforts:


I suggest everyone take a look at some of those issues, most are 
potential enhancements that anyone could add.
