No one has an OCaml compiler. If I'm going to write a compiler, I'm going to
write it in C, even if the language is C, because evenone has a C compiler.
I'm not going to use an older language just because it is older, I'm going
to use the most common language. On they that could be Rust, and then, the
it would be OK to write a rust compiler in Rust.
