I think the difference is, since Go has libraries like http in 
standard library, or de facto standard library, even if it's an 
external package, it's been included in thousands of projects 
since and went through a lot of testing.

Even though I like your libraries and have used them a few times, 
they haven't been as battletested. There might be missing vital 
functionalities (which you didn't just need for the moment), or 
there might be some nasty bugs lurking which just weren't 
triggered for the usual usecases. And if I were making a real web 
application, not a hobby project, I want to fully trust the 
libraries. I want to include the library and make use of it, and 
move on to more fun stuff. I don't want to debug the library 
whenever something breaks.
