It was a combination of a suggestion and a question. The suggestion
was "Rust's automation UX seems nice, I think it would be desirable to
target similar capabilities for CPython", the question was "Would it
be feasible to collaborate on actual automation development?".

It sounds like the pragmatic answer to the latter is "No, the
additional coordination overhead isn't worth the potential pay-off",
and I think that's fine - our respective communities can still learn
from each other when it comes to our definitions of "What does 'good'
look like?" in workflow design.
