I have used more than 12 langs. I think rust having a small std library is best for it kind of lang, but I'm sympathetic to your view.

What I think will help is have a "Rust Distribution" like anaconda, where that "defacto" crates are combined and more importantly, are part of the maintainments effort.

But to avoide the fate of python and others, that "Rust Distribution" is mean to exist ONLY FOR THE EDITION. When a new edition show, then another "Rust Distribution" with +/- crates is defined and that is the what is to be used. This ways, you know what to use as long you stay in the edition, and if you move, you know is to move along (and you can still use the older crates anyway)...
