naah... [Is it even possible to write a Go/Rust compiler in
Go/Rust? Or have they tried?]
Go is implemented in Go.
Maybe I missed something, but at last check, Go and most of
it's internal runtime is written in C++ (gccgo). They have an
"upstream" somewhere, so I'd imagine that is C++ too.
«The compiler and runtime are now written entirely in Go (with a
little assembler). C is no longer involved in the implementation,
and so the C compiler that was once necessary for building the
distribution is gone.»
