If we wrote a lot of code depending on the linkme/inventory/typetag crates, are we stuck on legacy Rust versions forever? Or is there a path forward?

    These crates (with around 20 million combined downloads) are no longer maintained and have stopped working correctly on new Rust versions (https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/47384). If we have a codebase where rewriting all of our code is infeasible, what other options do we have? Is there a realistic world where this functionality will ever exist again?
