Sure I agree, there is no objective measure, picking any criteria is
somewhat arbitrary and biased. I don't think anyone here has even measured
anything. But if such objectivity would be a requirement, we would be
powerless to make any assertion whatsoever, since even picking the criteria
is a biased act.  

Yet it really isn't all that relevant imho. It's undeniably that Tango is
important enough to D programming that it has it's place in the D
programming landscape for at least, let's say a significant number of
people. It's also fact that phobos is still relevant and has even picked up
speed since D2. 

Hopefully when D2 is getting finalized, this issue will be void and null for
the better of D.

I'd just like to note that you can download the compilers from the Tango
pages too, in which case they come with Tango instead of Phobos (some
downloads do have Tangobos though).
