I presume the version would be the same as the one of the project itself, i.e. when releasing libguestfs-x.y.z, we publish guestfs-rs-x.y.z to crates.io.Speaking of naming: it seems like libraries that interface/wrap a foreign C/C++/etc library are usually called foo-sys -- so should our binding be named guestfs-sys?
So you've seen my RFC? =) Just to guestfs-sys would be a crate that does only two things: 1) exposes the C functions using `extern` 2) links to the library And then another crate (e.g. guestfs) would expose the higher-level, safe, hopefully idiomatic API.
