Description

The suricatasc, and the smaller suricatactl tools are written in Python. Usually its not a good idea to rewrite just because, but Python is known to be problematic when shipping in a package that is expected to run everywhere without providing its own Python environment via venv (or whatever).

Going forward it would be ideal to have these extra tools written in Rust, it also lowers the surface of languages we need to maintain in production level code.
