    Migrate C code to Rust

    Semi-automatic conversion to unsafe Rust is possible right now, https://c2rust.com/. I haven't delved too deep, but I imagine that there are issues which might arise due to the subtle differences in the C and Rust memory models. And doing so would have limited benefits since unsafe Rust is no safer than C (and sometimes less safe).
