Thank you for your replies. This matches my expectations, but I wanted to confirm. 

One thing I still have an open question on is using non-GPL but GPL-compatible libraries. Ignoring Rust, would that be accepted in C? Or do all libraries need to be GPL as well?

This answer is not exclusive to Rust. I don't see any clear net benefit
from using another language along with C (even C++) in Emacs core.


Now, if someone wants to contribute a port to Redox OS, and the port
code uses Rust, that would be something else.

For example, the NS port uses Objective-C, the Haiku port uses C++, and
the Android port uses Java.

However, Redox has a C runtime, so I doubt that will be necessary.
