Might I just say that I think that this is a bad idea? I see that there are
now serious plans in this direction. It just seems like mental masturbation.

I just can't think of any improvement over the go tools that would be less
important than changing the host language. Can you name one? On the other
hand, making Go self-hosting might limit the ability to modify the language
for Go 2.0, should that ever occur.

Just my 2 cents, not like it's any of my business. :)

Hello everyone.
As far as I know, there is no Go compiler written in Go, right?
Expanding on that, are there other alternatives beyond the reference
compiler and gccgo?

The reason I ask is that I'd like to try writing a LLVM-based self-hosting
Go compiler. I need to pick a Bachelor's thesis topic and this seems to me
like a fun summer project.

Another question is, if I were to pursue this, what would the attitude of
"senior gophers" be towards such project?
