I've seen some folks talk about compiling Rust on the phone, which seems unnecessary to me since cross-compiling Rust is pretty straightforward, something I've already done for the RaspberryPi.

I feel that compiling directly on the phone is really cool as a feature, very cool that it is possible, but as for real software development it is not the most ideal way to go.

so cross-compiling if possible, might a good idea

Compiling on the phone is fine if you don't mind waiting a lot. Cross-compiling using a more powerful cpu is going to be a more pleasant experience.
And somewhere in between there's distcc although I've only used it with gentoo (and not on the pinephone)
