The {Rc,Arc}::new_cyclic documentation could really use some elaboration. At least I have zero idea what they do and what the use case is based on the docs :frowning: Where does the closure argument come from? Why is the closure needed in the first place? What should it return?

What about incremental compilation? It was disabled in 1.59, is it still disabled in 1.60 ?
