Rust has a reputation for performing on par or better than C++, but not 
C. If speed alone is the language determiner, why not C?

I don't know the details of the aggregate operations, but my first 
reaction to queries across millions of records is that storage and 
deserialization speed aren't as big an opportunity for performance as 
not brute-forcing your way through the records at all, using an index
