I'm okay with not dealing with LLVM for my system package manager,
thank you very much. I'd be more open to Rust if Rust also could be
built with GCC, and thus supported across literally everything, but no
one is investing in that effort.

And frankly, Rust is harder to program in than C++, and creating
bindings is no walk in the park.
