Thanks for the point. Ian, could you explain more what you mean by
"source code issues". From my non-native English speaker point of view,
I'm understanding "software quality" (i.e. bugs) which is not what you
seems to mean.

BTW, I am rather in favor of Go becoming more used and perhaps
default-enabled.... (just because I like the language and I trust your
work on Go in GCC; the one major thing I miss in Go is dynamic loading Ã
la dlopen).
