 Opinions?  Is this what matters to people?

Is what what matters? The link is to your response to someone. Did you mean to link to his post? Is what he said what you're referring to ("The main issue from my point of view is compatibility...")? If so isn't that what everyone's been saying all along from the first day it was announced Tango would be incompatible?

This is what i said in http://www.digitalmars.com/webnews/newsgroups.php?art_group=digitalmars.D&article_id=58448 The main problem is how to bring phobos and tango user together? Maybe tangobos helps, because phobos people want free function style instead member functions. (IMHO the free function style and the API is simpler to learn.) Maybe there are more things which phobos user want, but until Walter say "let us merge the libraries", this problem can't be solved. The question is: What will Walter?
