AFAIK Kernel + low level plumbing are primarily Assembly,C,C++,Rust

As one who has been involved in "low level plumbing", since the 1970's (including on IBM Mainframe Computers), I'm not afraid of Assembler Language.  I'm surprised, that I didn't know about Rust (package rustc).  Thanks for alerting me!
