It happens that I tried to package Rust, as an introduction to Guix.
Here is my version, inspired by the Haskell package, where Rust 1.10.0
is built, bootstrapped by a binary version of rustc 1.9.0. It uses the
"cc" wrapper trick previously presented.

Some questions, though:

1. I can compile a sample program in a guix environment created using
`guix environment gcc glibc binutils rust`, but the program
generated fails to run because can not be found. How can
it be added to the environment?

2. Having a Rust compiler is cool, but having Cargo, the Rust package
manager, would be even better. Cargo is also bootstrapped, and it is
also built using zillions of crates (Rust packages) downloaded from the
Internet. How could this case be handled in Guix?

Best regards,
