One question of mine which you missed (probably because it was deep in the body of a long paragraph): once I've successfully used "dub build", what's the command to actually install the built library and/or executables? Or is that not used because the idea is simply to provide dependency resolution for other codebases?
System-wide installation is not a job of language package manager, it is here to help with build-time dependency resolution, not installation (there was a hot discussion about this just recently). At some point it may get the functionality to generate system-specific packages / installers but this is quite a complex beast to get right.
Fair enough. I think I would be inclined to request/recommend that built files get placed in a dedicated build/ directory, though, so that it's easy to separate source from built files.
