Is AWS sponsoring Rust? Only a bit – and so is Microsoft Azure

I find it funny that Microsoft would not fix (i.e the SQL Server C++ bindings) to be safe (reduce raw pointers and replace with smart pointers) because it would require a "complete rewrite" and yet they are looking to migrate certain projects to Rust and write bindings for that. Surely that would constitute a "rewrite"?

It is quite annoying dealing with closed source libraries; I cannot even make minor tweaks some classes to make them inherit from an invasive pointer system for some amount of added safety.
