Found an excuse to start learning again...

@jjg Yes! Maybe if Go takes off in embedded systems we can get smaller binaries. And my job can get better, and I won't have to write C for legacy enterprise [mumbles].

It's such a good tool for doing lots of shit at one time. Not really the systems programming language it was initially claimed to be. But I keep thinking of the Go runtime codebase; it's certainly possible to write low-level code.

@captainbland I'll let you know if I come across it :)
