it's ok, i'd have said the same if someone kept getting negative, 
but i'm trying to do better

the main issue is the project is way too scattered away

- dsymbol
- libdparse
- dcd
- containers
- allocators

everything has its own git repo, every project reference some 
random version from each other

it makes implementing fix/feature that touches many repo at the 
same time a pain to manage, and also i guess a pain for reviewers

i suggest the following:

- merge everything as a single entity in a single repo, and get 
rid of dependencies we don't need (containers? we have std, 
allocators? when will that get out of experimental?)

that'll be a start making the project easier to use and to 
understand! contributor friendly!
