We discovered some incompatibilities when testing the current go RC against 2.4.23. That's
why I am adding go to the list of test clients. I would also like to add Python's hyper, given
time. Maybe even headless browsers.

The reasons why it's important is that current tests rely mainly on curl and nghttp clients,
both of which use libnghttp2. While this is good to test various conditions, true interop
with other http2 implementation can only be achieved by running other implementations. ;-)

test background, for the rich standard libraries and easy glue code.)
