As with the other bug, I don't see the point in this. This package is
used as a Build-Dependency, and not used by either end-users, or
developers working on Go source code on Debian, so splitting this off
will add space in the archive, and add a lot of complexity.

I'm against splitting this unless there's seriously good cause.
