This sounds like it is essentially bypassing the entire contribs system - not 
exposing the dependencies and not doing normal propagation. And while this 
probably works and saves time initially, it does not sound like it will scale 
to more than one Rust packages on contribs, especially if there is a common 
Rust dependency between several Rust packages.
