Awesome, thanks Andrew.

Since you are "the Rust guy" for SlackBuilds, what are your thoughts 
about adding individual crates as SlackBuilds to make script writing 
easier? I see a lot of the same dependencies showing up in many 
Rust-based scripts, but I'm not familiar enough with the Rust ecosystem 
to know whether this is a good idea (e.g. would the requirements for 
specific crate versions be an issue across different SlackBuilds?).
