9 I believe this isn't always a "don't want", there's systems on which it
10 simply is impossible to get Rust (ppc64-linux-musl for example). How
11 much does "removing cryptography" impact an Gentoo system wrt
12 availability of packages? I see pip in the list, so I expect the Python
13 env will be seriously crippled? An estimation of the impact would be
14 appreciated here.
