digitalmars.D - Phobos bindings

Phobos comes with zlib, curl and sqlite bindings.
Zlib sources come with phobos, so there's no need to build and 
link with it separately.
Why there's no curl and sqlite sources ?

For example sqlite comes as 1 file. I think we can add it too, 
isn't it ?

The inclusion of etc in general has been considered a mistake. Since they were added, dub has obviated any need to include such things in Phobos. In fact there have been efforts to remove them from Phobos (https://github.com/dlang/phobos/pull/4283). That being said, zlib is quite a static library. The others are actively developed, and we shouldn't need to keep updating all our sources when the external dependencies change. -Steve
