IIRC the problem is that DMD/phobos uses static linking for just about everything. 
So if you use writef you pull in huge amounts of stuff, same for just about 
everything else. It's a fixable problem but not one I know how to fix.

I seem to remember that someone built tango into a .so but I could be wrong
