Current status wrt learning Rust:
* read the book (mostly)
* have a small toy project, previously implemented in Python, available for porting
* set up a cargo project and dev environment in Code
* flailing wildly trying to actually understand the module conventions
* bending my brain to conceptualize porting a simple-ish Python OOP framework to Rust struct/impl

Me, reading the Rust book: oh, yeah, that all makes sense. Simple. Elegant, really. As a sophisticated, brilliant developer, this is great.

Me, writing Rust: what the fuck, why does this hate everything I write. Why is this so confusing. Python lets me do this. I'm throwing my computer in the trash.
