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)

about the rust aborting on OOM errors, isn’t that up to the global allocator? could you just write a simple wrapper around the default allocator to return an error on OOM?
