216: ruff, uv, and Astral: Python tooling, much faster, with Rust

Charlie Marsh and team are using Rust to make Python tooling faster.
  • Ruff can take the place of Flake8, isort, and Black, and so much more.
  • uv can take the place of pip, pip-tools, and virtualenv
  • Astral is Charlie's venture backed company, and what they have with `ruff` and `uv` is just the start.
Since uv is the newest tool, there's quite a bit of the discussion diving into uv.
