It definitely looks interesting wrt to investigating how much
infrastructure the current Go runtime needs or rather on what
functionality from the underlying system it depends. So diving
into the source code would be worthwhile indeed. It still stands
to reason how to properly wrap the Genode's C++ API, though.
