I want to remind everyone of a couple of things with rust packages:
* packages get added in alphabetical order
* every package is rust-foo-(version-major+minor)
* packages are added so that rust-foo-0.5 is higher than rust-foo-0.4,
  and rust-foo-0.4 inherits from rust-foo-0.5.
* Make sure the versions of the cargo{-development,}-inputs are correct.
  They sometimes change even when bumping a minor version.
* Try to add packages in an order that allows them to be built after
  each commit. This makes it easier to build and lint them.

And make sure at the end that the existing rust packages (currently
rust-cbindgen, ripgrep and librsvg@2.46) continue to build after you've
added and bumped other rust packages.
