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?
