@GrooveStomp is it meant to be a rust competitor?

@thurloat More along the lines of Jonathan Blow's Jai language. A workman-like successor to C.
Rust is very concerned with memory safety and is split in half between mutable and mutable operations. From that perspective, Odin is quite different.

I think the ambitions of Odin are also a lot smaller than those of Rust. :-)
