Is anyone still interested in this? I am tempted to dabble in this.
I do not share the love of C that a lot of the suckless programmers
seem to have (though I do share the hatred of C++), and I think that a
higher level language would have a lot of advantages.

However, it seems pointless to proceed unless the Go version is going
to supplant the C version. Why have the duplication?

Has anyone taken a stab at this? Any other thoughts?

Thank you.
