There's a reason Netscape died...

Perhaps Rust can and should be used for parts of the VM, but a full 
rewrite would be suicide, especially considering BEAM development does 
not have gigantic resources to begin with.

Even if you rewrite only parts of the VM, while you're rewriting you're 
not improving the features stack.
