Per bug 1243363, rust is now riding the trains (official builds) to release on linux and mac. Win64 should do the same.

(a) We don't have all the support we want for integration, but neither do we have much code in rust yet. Developing integration and implementation in parallel lets us move faster.

(b) We're committed to this experiment, so the earlier we get testing data the better. In particular, beta and release use is very different from nightly and dev edition. Better to find issues before we depend on the rust implementation of anything.

(c) Release drivers discovered we don't have proper testing of the mozconfig whitelist settings. Let's make their lives easier.
Which gecko trees should this land in, Just central (47) or also aurora (46)?

I had a brief chat with lizzard yesterday about rust and wanted to make sure we're all on the same page here.

It also landed for win32 builds on 47 in in a way that will ride to beta/release at the least ;-)

It's fine for this to ride the trains. But I guess we need a code change either way, so doing Aurora as well remains my preference. If I understand bug 1178897 correctly, the rust code won't hook gecko's allocator on windows the way it will on linux and mac, but that's not an issue for the rust code we have in tree for 46 or 47, so I'd rather have the pilot testing.

We've let this ride the trains for other archs. Should do so
for win64 as well.
