[Nix-dev] Pulling a programs source code from a git repo

Is it possible to pull a programs source code from a git repo?

For example the Rust programming language is still in development and many
libraries only build against the master branch. In Arch Linux you can use
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rust-git/?comments=all which pulls the
latest source code from the master branch and I was wondering if something
similar was possible using Nix and if not whether it is on the roadmap or

Thanks, Liam
