1. using lang/go-bin is acceptable
2. using lang/go-bin newer-than-release for one target is acceptable
3. updating lang/go115 to newer-than-release isn't acceptable, so either
we wait for a release or someone should backport the support for it.

(Or create a temporary lang/go116 or something, but I suspect this is a
harder path than backporting the support patch.)

Make sure you check the timeline of Go releases so you don't do all the
work of backporting for nothing :)


It would have been ideal if all packages could be bootstrapped without
binaries, but it's really hard to fix sometimes, and we don't want to
not offer packages until someone does the really hard work.
