I completely agree with Daniel in all points on this thread.  (he
aggressively states over and over his stance and the teams concerning the
goals of Rust. The team has not deviated from their objective of the Rust
model. Kudos.)

I do not need compiler switches nor do I want them.
I want the control defined in the code by me.
Giving me that control for wrapping on/off for a scope is the way forward.
Whatever the names end up being...

+1 for wrapping on/off for a scope.  Get 'er done.

(and thanks for keeping my memory safe)
