Yes, understood. But some APIs, similar to Javascript API I think, are still needed. THere
are not yet, as there are not yet for Python as I see in the repo (and there is an open issue
to provide them).

Hi Michele,

commenting only on Golang: While there are packages available that provide
a similar API surface, they have very little adoption throughout the Golang

In general, the mechanism to achieve concurrent processing in Golang is
goroutines ( The mechanism to
communicate results in an asynchronous way is buffered channels (

Any specific behavior you're after?
