Go has a more vibrant community, it would be indeed a great strategic decision.
Consul is also a much thought out project.

So i am loving what Kaushal has proposed - great stuff.  One can
easily write C bindings
to Go! so it isn't a tight requirement.

Gluster management daemon should be really thin while it can really
serve simple requests
  - Also Gluster management becomes an API but abstracted
  - This API allows for making Gluster management daemon extensible in
various languages
     too - for example writing a Javascript UI which provides a
tighter coupling with Gluster management

Indeed a great step in this direction +1

Religious confuse piety with mere ritual, the virtuous confuse
regulation with outcomes
