Hi Efraim (and the rest of the Rust team),

Is there any hope for the other architectures?  I'm thinking i686
mostly, but s390x, powerpc and mips are all on the radar.

Very impressive!  I only watch from afar and complain about the rust
situation whenever I can, but this is giving me hope.  With Rust getting
further and further down into the dependency chain, this is vital work,
and you all seem to be handling it very well.

I'm also curious, since you're "early adopters": how are you managing
with the team workflow?  Any tips, remarks or impressions that you could
share with other teams?
