In principle that should be possible, as there are precompiled downloads of dub 
available here:  Using these could have some 
advantages, including allowing the user of the plugin to specify the exact 
version of dub they want to build with.

Since there are different Linux downloads for x86, x86-64 and ARM, is there any 
way for the snapcract plugin to detect what the host system is and download 
accordingly ... ?
