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?

Cheers,

G.

P.S. Keeping up with Google is becoming a full-time job.  It's
friggin non-stop.  Who can handle it?  Truly incredible.
