That would be nice. For now, I've used the lxip stack in my program (and
wrote a convenient wrapper for it), since it depended on old C/C++ code
and therefore I needed a C++ API for opening UDP sockets.

But using lwip without libc could decrease the complexity and might be
better indeed.

I would guess a rust TCP stack would mainly be useful for Rust applications.
