If I understand this correctly, it means one would require the Rust
toolchain to support new languages in tree-sitter, or to improve
existing support.  Would that really fit Emacs?  I think many people
might not be comfortable learning such a large language and toolchain to
develop editing tools for Emacs.

Furthermore, is there any concrete reason this could not be done in

Note: Somehow I sent a reply earlier, and not a follow-up.  I apologize
