Preferring c over rust

I just noticed this failure:

The commit note says:

This package now uses rust. The user-settable variable LIBRSVG_USE_RUST
allows switching between this and the (obsolete) plain-C version
in librsvg-c. It defaults to "yes" on platforms that lang/rust currently

As projects move to non-portable languages, should we consider keeping the latest / last version which is still portable? In this case, I think it just needs to be fixed to prefer c, but in general I wonder what others' thoughts are about this kind of thing.
