I can see your point, but my perception of reality is that we have had a
lot of pain with rust building over the last few months.  If we can end
up in a situation where rust simply builds every time somebody tries, in
all sane configurations, and we believe that this will continue across
updates, that would be great.

I interpret your comment as:

  you don't object to the existence of rust-bin

  on NetBSD-current, you think rust should default to lang/rust.

I guess there is 9-llvm too to check.

:-) I have noticed how at least some people using some Other Systems
perceive that building things from source is too hard to actually do.
