Well, it has shebang line #!/usr/bin/env dub in the beginning. 
You can save it as an executable file on Linux and it will run 
with dub.

Yeah, this looks a bit awkward. Perhaps only first occurence of 
deprecation issues should be showing up.

vibe.d is a bit too high level for something that would be a part 
of stdlib. We have for bit of the low level stuff. I 
don't think anything higher level should be part of the standard 
library, as long as there is an obvious #1 package to go to when

You're acting a bit spoiled. Outside of donations, there aren't 
any people working on D full-time, so no one owes you anything. 
Languages like Rust have people employed by Mozilla who work 
full-time on it. Paying people is a way to "force" people to work 
on the hard problems that no one would like to touch otherwise. 
Without it, people will work on the stuff they need and the 
itches they need to scratch.
