I was going to respond similarly, and add a note that it isn't clear that
gollvm (LLVM-based Go compiler) supports either PGO or the sanitizers, so
that may be more difficult than Rust which does. As Snehasish notes, we are
focused on C/C++, but this will all be done in the LLVM IR level and should
be language independent in theory.
