Are there plans to add the Rust programming language as a skill/tag?

There's good news and bad news here... haven't heard of Rust before and searched to see its market share and came across with this chart: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3kaqarmu2otd6rg/Screenshot%202016-07-12%2017.30.10.png?dl=0

 

Good news is: PowerShell has the lowest market share, thanks God and hope it will stay so.

 

Bad news is: 0.245% market share...

 

Don't want to start any flame war between languages, but isn't it too obscure?

If you select IronPython and also select the H20 programming language from the skills list you will automatically get Rust.

There was a good thread on Quora where a 69 year old programmer answered what programming languages to learn. He mentioned that he had seen languages/frameworks come and go and focused on the core ones and laughed at people who worry about learning every language.

 

You only need to know 1 language. C. After that all the others fall into place. Of course, we C# people like to argue with the Java people but nobody is funnier to troll than a COBOL programmer. Just say something like "You're as useful as a COBOL programmer" and watch the hate fly.

Rust is pretty obscure in terms of people actually using it, in jobs, yes. But it has some pretty big traction as a second/third/whatever language for programmers, and it's backed by Mozilla, a big enough name I think for people to pay attention to it. They're starting to ship some Rust code (albeit a very small amount) into Firefox, so while maybe it's not the most used language in the world yet, I don't see any reason not to add it.

 

(disclaimer: not a rust programmer, tried to learn it a bit ago but was too lazy to do anything useful with it)
