I'll add 3.4.8 for non-x86_64 platforms and see if I can do something
about the rust inputs for python-cryptography, to shorten the graph a
bit and note which crates are "locked" in their current versions.

I hear we should be able to do aarch64 with our new version of mrustc
but I haven't tried building it yet on my machines. I'd leave it as a
happy bonus for now and leave aarch64 with the C counterparts for this
round, rather than relying on the rust bootstrap chain, considering how
much RAM it can use.
