Barbara has been using Rust since the 0.1 release. She remembers some of the crazy syntax in Ye Olde Rust of Yore and secretly still misses the
alt keyword (don't tell anyone). Lately she's maintaining various projects in the async space.
- She is using Rust for its feeling of productivity, and she expects Async Rust to continue in that tradition.
- She maintains several existing projects, so stability is important to her.
- She wants a design that feels like the rest of Rust.
- She loves Rust and she expects Async Rust to share its overall values.
