Brilliant characterization by analogy!

Memoize function without cloning
Most functional languages use garbage collection, so memory management is not a concern there. In Rust we need to do something explicitly.

Explaining why the borrow checker is complaining and how to deal with it.

One problem I've had, in general and not with just Rust, is that people can find a way to do anything with anything. I've seen people do some horrific stuff with their hammers just to prove they don't need a screwdriver.

That's the way I feel about the borrow checker.

Rust enables belligerent refactoring – making dramatic changes and then working with the compiler to bring the project back to a working state.

Can this be the quote of the week, or do we run into weird copyright stuff?

We could absolutely link to it, and we could quote the text (since it's not like any of the other quotes are licensed under an Open Source license), but I don't think we could embed the image without license issues.

I'd propose linking it separately, and not making it the quote of the week.
