Personally, I'm not sure that much is gained in pitting Go
precisely because they're so different that they're likely to
completely different sets of people.
I also do not regard Go as a competitor to D. It's more of a
competitor to Java and Ruby.
I find most people I know using Go are from the python camp and
either wanted static typing or faster runtime execution.
