OOTB Rust programming langague support

The new Rust programming language is developed by Mozilla.

http://www.rust-lang.org/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rust_(programming_language)

It gives a very solid infrastructure to write APIs (perhaps even with ABI style).

It has some advantages over C APIs, and the compiled code is as low-level as that of C/C++.

Please provide OOTB support for Rust in Visual Studio.

Thanks.

    What I really want from Microsoft is to support debugging of Rust better. Being able to handle Rust data types in the debugger and evaluate expressions and stuff.

    Having a high quality add-in is a good starting point. Having an official add-in is even better, but what we'd really like, if MS made their own implementation. All languages benefit from the fact of having multiple independant implementations.
