One additional way for us to say inside rust itself if a library is
officially supported would be for us to the #[experimental] / #[unstable] /
#[stable] / etc tags inside the https://github.com/rust-lang/ libraries.
#[experimental] libraries may or may not survive, but #[unstable] and above
will probably be around in one form or another.
