    The vm of a language known for distributed systems reliability, rewritten in a language (Rust) that is trying to optimize for safety, speed and developer productivity? That sounds like a pretty good combination!

    I think one of the best things Rust can do to unseat C as the default systems language is simply making these sorts of things (implementing language runtimes) easier to do correctly - since all of the constraints are what Rust is trying to optimize for.

      On that note, friendlysock previously submitted Rustler for doing native functions in Rust.
