I agree that there are many interesting aspects to these type 
systems. IIRC Pony-lang also guarantee deadlock-free execution.  
Go 1.6 is going to get a dedicated SSA optimizer and also a 
memory sanitizer like C/C++, which might bring Go closer to C.

But C is really all about having full control over memory layout 
and execution, it interfaces with just about any conceivable 
language and compiles to an insane amount of hardware. None of 
these other languages have that focus. Rust, Go and D are more 
like high level languages primarily for PCs.

Although Rust is perhaps closest to C by having a lightweight
