One alternative that lies somewhere in the middle is using allocators:


With something like alloc_system, you get a nice wrapper for calling into
the system malloc(), but can still remain compatible with #![no_std] usage
(for e.g. embedded use cases)

That said, one would hope Vec will wind up (back) in ::core soon now that
allocators are stable
