[rust-dev] how is Rust bootstrapped?

Do you plan to create a cleaner full-bootstrap process? By "cleaner" I mean
dividing stage-0 to more [sub-]stages, which would be well-defined and
documented in terms of the set of language features it implements.
Currently these sub-stages are defined by a team member's mood to instruct
the build-bots to make a snapshot. This kind of bootstrap seems to be a
black-box.

I understand you do not spend resource on such tasks before 1.0, but do you
think this is a legitimate|sensible request at all? Would it be worth the
work?
