very good idea: creating a linux kernel module mastodon client, exposing the api via /dev/masto #mastodev
Too much crypto — many symmetric cryptography primitives would not be less safe with significantly fewer rounds. https://eprint.iacr.org/2019/1492.pdf
PSA: Did someone link you a post somewhere else on the fediverse? Copy and paste it into the search bar, and you can read it all from the comfort of your client, and interact with things without dealing with the clunky "remote whatever" OAuth business!
“If I am proved correct, the Germans will call me a German, the Swiss will call me a Swiss citizen, and the French will call me a great scientist. If relativity is proved wrong, the French will call me a Swiss, the Swiss will call me a German, and the Germans will call me a Jew.” (Albert Einstein)
@Rick_B_ I can't impose my will by design. Mastodon is open-source, anyone can run their own server (and 2,000+ people do). I can control my own server but if someone doesn't like it, they can leave and use a different one. Freedom of movement.

I would really rate const generics as one of the most needed features in stable #rust. https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/44580#issuecomment-570191702
Maybe rewrite it in #rust?
