Go 1.5 has some minor breaking changes, so I've been waiting until I
(or some other kind soul) has had the time to do a full ratt run on Go
1.5 and make sure all our packages either build/test successfully or
that we have a plan/patches ready to fix the issues that are bound to
come up.

To Michael's point about compiling Docker via gccgo -- as the
maintainer of the build scripts for upstream, please don't do that for
anything serious.  I've been working closely with IBM on that, and
none of us are really thrilled with the results so far, but it's the
only way we can get anything at all on some of their more interesting
architectures like s390x.
