Except that Go does not really remove shared memory multithreading; it is
still possible to get data races (which is why they have a race detector).
They provide channels, but nothing is preventing races other than
convention. On the other hand, Rust (a native code language) offers a much
superior solution, with compile-time enforcement of data sharing.
