jacob: it's rust.  to reiterate, because i did not receive any indication
that you've read the comments above: *i cannot take the time to learn rust*
which means *you become the sole exclusive bottleneck for critical research
in this area*.

if i stop absolutely everything that i am doing and take the 2 to 6 months
needed to become proficient at rust *it jeapordises the timeline for the
entire project*.

there are only two of us full-time at the moment.  therefore *we cannot use
rust for this critical research*.

i'm sorry to have to emphasise this: i have repeated this multiple times
throughout this bugreport and multiple times before that: i know you like rust, 
and you want to use it wherever you can, however the other people in the
group *cannot use it*.

once you have completed the work that you are doing - in rust - we have
to *throw it away* and* entirely start again* in a programming language that
is common to everyone.

and it would be completely unfair to request a payment from NLnet for
work, so the rust code - for which you are the exclusive developer - has to
take second priority.

regarding libre-soc-misc: i mean "move the posting of discussion of
rust and web-assembly off of this bugreport and use direct posting
on libre-soc-misc"

if there is anything that you do not understand or agree with please do say
so and let's discuss it ok?  is there anything above or in any of the comments
that is logically unsound or un-reason-able, that you can see?  or, is there
any alternatives that allow collaborative development on the requirements
in a rapid prototyping fashion on a fast turnaround timescale?
