Perfecting Rust Packaging - The Plan

Not to argue with this, just a FYI: Tests (at least one in libcoretest) will fail once you get rust to compile on i586 hardware. i686 is the earliest hardware with SSE2. That's not simply a performance boost, it also affects the correctness of floating point calculations: pre-SSE2, basic arithmetic operations are sometimes rounded incorrectly. There has been some discussion about how to deal with this and similar problems, but so far there is neither consensus nor an implementation.
