Hi Till,

I noticed that Joyent has very recent rust bootstraps, e.g. 
which we could leverage as an internal payload of the rust component. At 
least initially.

Looking at platform support 
(https://forge.rust-lang.org/platform-support.html), Solaris is Tier 2 
platform for which standard library is guaranteed to build, though 
looking at Joyent's rust it seems to me that rustc and cargo are doable 
as well.

Thank you for your support, I'll get back to you when something 
materialize :).
