It looks a lot like Limbo; does it have Limbo's dynamic loading?

It's clear that 6g doesn't do as much optimisation as gccgo.
It probably doesn't do as much optimisation as GHC.
And it certainly doesn't have any kind of generics, let along
type-level programming.
I'd say the semantic distance between 'go' and x86 is quite a
bit less than that between Haskell and x86.  No laziness!
