There is a WIP patch from fedora to reduce the size to normal here;

There is also some patches floating around on the rust github.

I noticed that Rust releases a new version every 5-6 weeks, more or less. Let's wait for Rust 1.39 first; shouldn't it solve anything, I'll apply the patch.

Rust 1.39 has been taken out of the oven just now.

Nah, Rust is still as big as a whale. Gonna try some patches out there.

I think this is the patch we want. We can wait until it hits a stable release.

Yes, I'm reluctant to apply patches, given that a previous attempt to reduce Rust's size has been reverted. I'd personally wait for an upstream-approved solution.

It's been fixed: Now let's just wait for a new release (or two).
