Rust libraries only need to include "copies" for generics; and only
enough information to use them. Keeping the raw source code would be
one way of doing that (like C++ header-only libraries), but it is not

However, it is true that Rust does not have a stable ABI, that the
vast majority of Rust open source applications get built from source
via Cargo and that Cargo does not share artifacts in its cache.
