In its current form, it's merely a list of libraries with brief 
descriptions.  I think we could benefit from more detail, maybe in a 
structured form.

One possibility is to make it into a table.  The columns could be something 
like those currently used on the GuiLibraries page, though it should 
probably be kept as a straight alphabetical list with status as a column, 
rather than grouped by status as is the GUI libraries list at the moment.

We should probably have one more column, to indicate which runtime library 
(Phobos, Tango or any other that may be conceived as time progresses) it 
depends on.

We also ought to have somewhere where people can find out which libraries 
are compatible with D2.  One possibility is to add a "D2 support" column to 
the table.  Another is to have a separate "D2Libraries" page, which would 
list those libraries that are D2-compatible to any extent arranged in terms 
of the status of this compatibility.  The former would be simpler; the 
latter would enable more detail to be gone into.

Whichever route we take, we could use for statuses of the D2 compatibility 
the same statuses that are used for libraries in general, plus a few to the 
effect of:
- Made exclusively for D2
- Not made to support D2, but works nonetheless
- Has separate editions for D1 and D2

And with D2 not being stable yet, statements of D2 compatibility should also 
include some indication of which version(s) of (DM)D2 it's geared towards.

Comments?

Sounds good to me. I would say feel free to make it better. Maybe you should start with a new page?
