Comment 12 for bug 1267393

I find it rather concerning that golang-go has no runtime library, but everything gets linked in statically. This leads to enormous binaries (e. g. each of the juju program are > 30 MB) and hence lots of wasted download/hard disk/archive space, as well as being quite an interesting challenge wrt. security/bug fix updates, as pretty much every golang-go program had to be rebuilt. This also completely escapes symbol tracking, thus makes it hard to detect ABI changes, and thus leads to surprising FTBFS of packages once the underlying toolchain changed.
