Ralf is definitely the right person to talk to. I don't think the UCG
repository is the right place to start that discussion, though. For now,
I'd suggest starting an email thread with Ralf and some C-and-kernel
memory model folks (hi Paul!) to suss out the most important changes
that would be needed.

With my language team hat on, I'd *absolutely* like to see the Rust
memory model support RCU-style deferred reclamation in a sound way,
ideally with as little unsafe code as possible.
