If we add Go as a supported language, then all projects could use it 
(without requiring case-by-case TC blessing). As the resolution[1] 
explains, we want to standardize on a limited number of supported 
languages so that we can use the right tool for the right job, while 
limiting the impact on infrastructure and community fragmentation. But 
once a language is accepted, the more we use it the better.
