Re: On speed

Could be right, my understanding was that there was a very small runtime with Rust (as with C) and have seen references to it around Trait implementations, array bounds checking, memory ('dropping') etc - but might need to switch to a rust forum for detailed information on whether that is actually different/bigger to what comes out of C for trivial cases. Overall I would recommend it purely for safety, and if any performance sacrifice exists, meh.

Yes, almost all benefits are realised at compile time but it's all assembly somewhere, and C doesnt check that stuff it just does it...
