'Google' does not think.

Go builds on previous works by the main developers. I doubt that they 
even considered trying to upgrade Python and in particular, its 
generators, to accomplish the parallel processing goals. Their goal of 
making Go very fast to compile by machines somewhat conflicts with 
Python's goal of being fast to read by humans.
