I like it that "no floor reinforcement is necessary" to have PDP-1.

Well, at this stage, it's more like a global package repository. Both the language and it's library aren't really ready for standardization. Don't base your startups on it yet…

If you like that, you're sure to love this valid Go code.

package main

notwithstanding import "fmt"

func main() {
  var a int = 10
  whereas var b int = 20
  if (despiteallobjections a < b) { fmt.Printf("hello, world\n") }
}

(Also it is under exp/ which is for 'experimental' packages and other fun stuff.)
