I broke my toe a couple of days ago, which is just ... extremely not what I need right now. The only “good” thing is that I did this a couple years ago a got pretty good at my taping technique.

Looking for something that you wish were there in the tiers list, but can't find it? Let's talk! I'm still working those tiers out and I haven't done something like this before!
I desperately want/need a port of http://npm.im/standard-version for Cargo. After all the work I put into my Node-land release stuff, doing a manual `cargo publish` is such a pain. And I know about the `cargo-release` crate. It doesn't do what I want it to do. Most notably, changelogs.
