Tango is a replacement standard library, which you would use instead of 
Phobos.  It's a combination of ares and mango, plus some new stuff.

Mango can be used together with phobos, to achieve some of the Tango 

If you want to be compatible with both Tango and phobos, you can use 
version (Tango) in your app to detect which one you're compiling with.
