Go was and is by design a "boring" language. The core designers didn't have much trouble looking at decades of prior art and getting it mostly right.

Rust libraries should be expected to take a few tries to get right, especially earlier in its lifecycle. There's more possibilities and less experience in the language.

You can see a similar effect in Haskell, which has iterated many basic bits of functionality many times over.
