[rust-dev] Rust on Xen

The OCaml-on-Xen OpenMirage (http://openmirage.org/) project is very
interesting to me.  The idea is that your OCaml application is compiled
directly into a bootable Xen microkernel image.  Rather than running inside
an OS, your OCaml links to a "libOS", a library that provides all the OS
services in terms of Xen hypercalls.

What are your thoughts regarding whether the same could be accomplished
with Rust?  You'd have to reimplement the Rust runtime and many OS
services, though perhaps the work done for OpenMirage could be of some help
there.

It seems like Rust would be a great language for this.
