    So appreciative of Rust’s stability guarantee after reading posts like this this.

      Agreed, although there are tradeoffs. Rust’s guarantee isn’t a pure win. Features which people want may take substantially longer to be stabilized because once it’s stable, it’s stable. Named arguments have been under discussion for Rust for years, but haven’t happened yet. A weaker stability guarantee may make those discussions easier.

      I agree with Rust’s choice, but it’s worth acknowledging what Rust is giving up.
