updates for phobos in svn
I needed some stuff so I updated Phobos today. Here's the lowdown:

$(VERSION 030, Xyz 99, 2009, 
=================================================,
$(WHATSNEW
        $(LI std.algorithm: added minPos. Improvements to Splitter 
suggested by Brad Roberts. Splitter now is bidirectional. Also Splitter 
has one extra trailing element if it ends with a separator.)
        $(LI std.format: added raw specifier for reading)
        $(LI std.stdio: added File.byChunk))
	$(LI std.array: Improvements to Appender. Now it works with string and 
other immutable-element arrays, and accepts ranges in put().)
	$(LI std.range: Added iota with two arguments. Added FrontTransversal 
and Transversal.)
	$(LI std.traits: Added isImplicitlyConvertible.)
$(BUGSFIXED
        $(LI $(BUGZILLA 2882): std.random.MersenneTwisterEngine without 
seed)
        $(LI unlisted: made std.numeric.entropy work on const/immutable 
arrays)
        $(LI $(BUGZILLA 2893): qualified types don't have an Unsigned 
counterpart)
	$(LI $(BUGZILLA 2906): writef problem with formatting floating point)
	)
)

To get these changes, you may want to get and build Phobos from dsource.org.

Re: updates for phobos in svn
Could you take a look at fixing the deadlock problem in std.stdio? It 
looks like recent bug-fixes in dmd have broken the file-locking logic, 
causing deadlocks as soon as you do any writing with multiple threads.
