Python & Go

I'm just learning about Google's latest: the GO (Go?) language.
(e.g. http://golang.org or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKnDgT73v8s).
There are some distinctly Pythonoid features to the syntax, such
as "import this_or_that", the absence of parentheses at the top of
flow control constructs, and quite a few statements without a
trailing semicolon. Then again, there's a lot that looks distinctly
un-Pythonlike, such as the curly brackets all over the place. And
among the un-Pythonlike stuff there's a lot that looks like nothing
else that I've ever seen...
Just out of curiosity, how much did GvR contribute to this effort?
P.S. Keeping up with Google is becoming a full-time job. It's
friggin non-stop. Who can handle it? Truly incredible.
