It used to be the other way around, this is going to be solved with a 
combination of:

- using upstream go releases when on the supported arch
- enable cross compilation for go (when no cgo is used initially)
- allow parts to 'provide' things for plugins (this solves much more 
than just the go story, but would also make the ros, python, java, 
maven, ant and other stories much nicer).
