Well, what I noticed is the huge size of the compiled binaries.
2.2M for a "Hello World"-program is an unreasonable demand. It's
possible to strip the size to around 1.2M by passing
        -ldflags '-s -w'
to "go build".
This is quite inhibiting, but I'm glad to see this modern
language default to static linking.
