https://github.com/RustPython/RustPython I haven't looked at all closely, but an interesting project

I would love in 10 years for most core infrastructure / tools like CPython and Linux kernel to be built with Rust.

Indeed! Those two projects don't sound like they would be ported to rust thought ... Especially linux, but there are rumours that fuschia has some rust...

The key issue I imagine would be difficulty in migrating incrementally. Any big rewrite is doomed to fail. Is it easy to half half your code in C and half in Rust? For example does everything have to be serialized? Also rust still only works with LLVM, right?

Not sure about the llvm portion, but I remember vlc experimenting with replacing some libs with rust versions: http://dev.unhandledexpression.com/slides/rustconf-2016/vlc/
I guess as long as you doing dynamic linking compiler is not so much of an issue

there were lots of fuschia discussions at the webassembly meetup a month ago at mozilla
