New version of sudo in Rust

Hello:

Came across this today.

The sudo command-line tool has been implemented in the Rust programming language
to hopefully rid it of any exploitable memory-safety bugs.
Prossimo, a project overseen by the non-profit Internet Security Research Group (ISRG),
announced the first stable release of sudo-rs this week. That open source codebase
includes the related su command-line program, again in Rust.

Great... more people trying to rustify things that don't need it. (which is 100% of all of it)

The best way to think of rust, is its training wheels for programmers.

If you are a patient and someone says they are a butcher, would you want them to be your doctor?

If programmers use training wheels programming languages, like java, rust, javascript, the web gets screwed up more and more.

Javascript supposedly doesn't require much talent to learn... and then some people wonder why the web is so bloated and insecure...

The irony is so thick you could cut it with a knife... 

I would love it if all these imbeciles would stop presuming that rust is a free programming language. It is not, it has trademark restrictions all throughout if you even so much as modify it without their permission.

I dislike people who presume in situations like this alot.

If people don't know how to program in C, effectively, then they shouldn't be coding anywhere where security is a concern. Unless you can use non-idiotproof programming languages.  Java, javsascript and rust are heavily bloated as are a few others. I only recently learned that php is another programming language with similar problems to rust and java.  Apparently php devs dropped the gpl license option and left the bad license intact as the only option.
