One of the bigger issues is likely to be the trust put in Rust. I'm not 
saying that it can't deliver, in some respects. But I don't think it is 
going to make a difference when the confidence inspires people to think 
that the insecure layers above it are somehow now magically safe.

I get the impression that this will be the unspoken advertisment heard 
by many a flock.

This is based on pattern recognition, more than any kind of inside track. 
So I admit that I'm crying a little bit beyond my capacity to hurt.
