Re: automatic translation?

I don’t know anything about Swift, but if it lets you do things with memory that Rust doesn’t (and Rust is very picky indeed, quite rightly given its goals) it might be impossible to translate compilable Swift into compilable Rust without using lots of unsafes.

If anyone out there knows for sure I’d be interested to know (preemptive beer icon attached)
