      That would just result in two separately maintained implementations.

        Sounds good to me! A small price to pay for the Superior Rust Future.

          Do you have a github link to your project where you are doing the rewrite ?

                Can you give me a link to you git repo (the server of which is written in Rust), with your git implementation (in Rust of course) and the afore-mentioned project?

                    The XSetIOErrorExitHandler will be used in Gnome to handle Xwayland crashes gracefully. That should help with stability, as apparently quite a few crashes of the Wayland session are in Xorg, not the compositor.
