I think Rust brings something new and interesting to language design.

Databases like to have many readers or a single writer for a given piece of
data.  Rust takes this idea and makes it part of the language.

It also manages to be largely memory-leak free, without a garbage collector.

And it still allows you to shoot your foot off if you really want to.  But
there's a hoop to jump through first, which, I think, is how it should be.
