I'm not sure I follow. There's already demand for golang infrastructure in
Designate and Swift, so I don't see why we wouldn't make sure our
infrastructure supports those.

The etherpad made a veiled reference to Kolla wanting to do something in
Go. I was just making the point that I think deployment projects are
already other-language-based and so don't follow the same set of
constraints as the OpenStack project itself.
