For all projects, obviously not. But for most projects Go is by far
the least bad choice.

C is still the right choice some times, but rarely it is a better
choice than Go.

And in such cases, make and mk have worked just fine for decades, so
all this discussion about build systems mostly a waste of time.

All that said, I do like redo, I just don't see that much use for it,
and I'm not interested in using it unless it is implemented in a sane
language like C, rc or Go.
