-1 to this idea from OpenBSD that all syscalls have to be routed through libc, requiring e.g. Golang to link to and run syscalls via libc.

Languages which are not C should not depend on C. A language design is much more compelling when its own compiler, runtime, stdlib, etc are self-hosting (i.e. written in the language itself). Constraining ourselves to a language design which can route all of its syscalls through the libc abstraction layer (which is THICK) constrains our language designs in ways I dislike.

@sir I think, Mr DeVault, that this would be an appropriate time for you to create such a language to demonstrate :-)
