It is known, if the people working on that are confident that having C++
as core language is what boosted clang instead of having a clear
separation of layers, good reusability and a clean API so be it.

(Meanwhile gccgo and gold still has a good chunk of neat shortcomings
making a good point that the language isn't a magic bullet)

And we are discussing on how bend a C runtime to fit the C++ runtime.

I do really hope Go will win more people and useful code and integration
will come up to make C++ less important.
