Libs matters
My libs (I'm now finishing using ArrayBuilder everywhere it gives a gain) aren't a third lib alternative to Phobos and Tango, they run on D1 Phobos, about all of what they contain is absent from D1 Phobos, and ~98% of what they contain is absent from D2 Phobos, so they are meant to complement Phobos, they often contain patches to missing things in the D language, that I really hope will become useless, so I can remove them (for example I have had to write the ArrayBuilder, a StructCmp(), a equal() to test equality of AAs and arrays of static arrays, a printing function to replace/improve the limited/bad writefln/writef, etc etc). The only partially duplicated things are few of the ones into the std.algorithm of Phobos, but even that module isn't much duplicated, because they are based on a quite different philosophy.

So if Walter is interested I can write a long list that explains the contents and implementations of the modules of my libs (and/or he can just take a look at the html documentation and code), so he can tell me if there are modules/chunks of them he is willing to see copied into Phobos of D1/D2 (the license isn't a problem, at the moment most of the code has a Python license, and I can change it to make it suitable for Phobos). The more parts he wants to copy, then more things I can remove from them. They are also a way to let practical usage show where D1 itself lacks things.

Where's the introduction? and the source code base?

At the beginning of the 'func' module, the main one, so you can find it at the start of its html documentation.

I don't understand.

He was looking for the floowing link, I think:

Re: Libs matters
Thanks! It'd be great if you could post here a list of the modules and a 
brief summary of what each is.
