there is a definite removal date for std.xml in the docs now:
> It will be removed from Phobos in 2.101.0.
Will basic XML support be removed from libphobos entirely? Are we
forced to use external libraries?
We use simple XML code in some D shebang scripts at work. It is a
fine feature, that we never needed external dependancies, just
Removing the simple but working XML code from libphobos also
removes some advantages from using D for scripting, IMHO.
Having everything essential in libphobos and no external
dependancies was a great argument for using D vs. using other
popular languages and alternatives in the past.
