    > I feel like this really only makes sense if pyca/cryptography had planned on adding the Rust dependency from the very beginning (or from very early on). Is there any indication that was the case?

    I am sure this idea surfaced several times in IRC or possibly in the mailing lists. Certainly, the authors have been toying with handling ASN.1 in rust since 2015 [1], which I guess will be the next logical step.

    I do agree that this is mostly a political stance. pyca/cryptography is a wrapper sandwiched between a gigantic runtime written in C (CPython/PyPy) and a gigantic library written in C (openssl).

    The addition of Rust as dependency enables the inclusion of just 90 lines of Rust [2] where the only part that really couldn't be implemented in pure Python is a line copied from OpenSSL [3] (i.e. it was already available), and which is purely algebraic, therefore not mitigating any real memory issue at all (the reason to use rust in the first place).

    The change in this wrapper (pyca/cryptographic) does not move the needle of security in any significant way, and it is really only meant to send the signal that adding Rust in all other Python packages and especially in the runtime itself will now come at no (political) cost.
