As far as I can understand then, in your opinion cargo is better 
than dub because:

* It can use direct links to git repositories instead of 
mandating the owners of those repositories explicitly register 
them (that's all does, associate an email address 
and package name with, more often than not, a git repo on github).
* The community rallies behind it
* Details of where compilation artifacts are on the filesystem

Is that an accurate summary?
