wow: #curl is moving to a RustTLS backend – initially opt-in, but the plan is to make it the default eventually.

I did *not* see that coming. I thought we might one day get a #rust alternative to curl, but curl itself embracing Rust is quite the vote of confidence.

(imo, more meaningful that FAANG's recent/continuing rust love)


It's also kind of weird, considering about half a year ago Daniel said to me, loosely summarised, that he wants nothing but C backends because eventually he may have to maintain them, and only feels comfortable with C for that. It'll be interesting how this pans out longer term.
