The only part of rust srings that's "hardcoded" is that str is
different from [u8], so that indexing operations can be implemented
differently (to respect unicode character boundaries).
Things such as allocating memory for concatenated strings are not hardcoded.
This begs the question of why str is a primitive type, not a simple
wrapper type. I don't know enough rust to answer that.

So, to build rust without rust compiler you have to deal with suck. To
build C without C compiler... Can you even do that in this day and
