  1. Hmmm… I’ve long been a proponent of generally preferring processes over threads (mostly because last time I was working on a big threaded engine processes were at least as fast on the Linux kernel of the day, and there really wasn’t all that much shared memory between the threads). I may have to learn enough Go to better understand what he’s trying to accomplish here, but I like the first-pass read of it.
