Wondering this. The only downside of this would be installing more
dependencies to build Emacs, say, if someone were to do a contribution to
Emacs core with Rust

There are two problems:
- imposing an additional dependency for those who compile Emacs (and
potentially even for those who *use* Emacs if it requires a specific
run-time library).
- imposing knowledge of an additional language for the maintainers.

If the feature is *very* desirable, hard to reimplement in C or Elisp,
and is optional, I guess maybe potentially it could hypothetically
be discussed?

Stefan "who likes Rust, FWIW"

That's what I was fearing, jaja. If a feature fulfills those three requirements maybe a discussion
about it could (hypothetically) start. Got it.

Was asking because I would like to run some experiments to scratch an itch I have, but I did not
wanted to waste time if such thing won't be shipped with the rest of Emacs (or not? if anything, the
thing I want to do can land on GNU ELPA I guess).

BTW, there is remacs ( https://github.com/remacs/remacs) for the particular itch of rust.
