Perhaps I'm not the best person to speak on the matter as I've never touched 
any Golang tools except dh-golang. Situation with Golab libraries is not 
ideal (to say the least) but I understand that Golang is not the only 
language without concept of dynamic linking. As I recall someone mentioned 
Haskell as another example.

It is my understanding that when vulnerability is fixed in Golang library it 
should be sufficient to NMU (re-build) all reverse dependencies.

I believe that Golang stuff that we've packaged should become part of next 
release even without security support. Debian simply won't be competitive 
without container tools so excluding Golang is not an option.
IMHO shipping container-related software should be our strategic priority for 
next release.
