Good point, and that might be true, but I want to do it in Go becauseÖ

1. I want to learn Go Ė I havenít had a chance to try it yet.
2. My guess is that it will execute faster when written in either Go or C.
3. I prefer programming in C-like languages, as it gives more control
over how the statements are executed by the machine (am I wrong?) Go
has a garbage collector, which I donít like, but I believe itís a sane
choice by the language designers.
4. I suck at Lisp, which shouldnít matter, since one can always learn
and improve. But after watching this[1] Robert Pike video on YouTube,
Iím eager to check out Go first.
