Sorry if I was unclear: with "it", I was referring to xmpp-client,
not to the Go tool chain.

Having the Go tool chain available is great, and a necessary first
step, but that's quite different from being able to `apt-get install
xmpp-client' and then see the upgrades and security fixes flow in just
like for basically all other software I'm running.

Hopefully I'm *not* starting yet another discussion about whether
per-language ways of distributing software (CPAN, go get, etc.) are
useful or not (I think they are), or about the pros & cons of the new
Grand Unified Software Repository™ (Github). Don't feed the troll :)
