Mesa already requires people to know C, Python, and now newly Gitlab CI scripts just to get stuff done and merged. Another language would only exacerbate the issue and steepen the learning curve.

Rust in a leaf-node of the project (a driver or compiler backend)
rather than in a common piece of infrastructure.
