Yes, Rust 1.10 builds with the previous stable release (1.9) for the
first time. So we will only need one binary to bootstrap Rust. Although
this will quickly require a long chain of builds because Rust releases
every 6 weeks and 1.11 is only guaranteed to build with 1.10, etc.

So after only two years we may need to compile like 17 different
releases to get the current version.
