So in the words of Obi-Wan, Go is faster "from a certain point of view." (And only if you don't mind that, in exchange for that marginally faster light-load performance, the Go version handles higher load much less smoothly than the Perl server.)

Don't get me wrong, I agree that for most applications, that's preferable.

Yep, agree, that's pretty accurate description of the situation, and conclusion as well.
