Would it be a better option to have golang-1.x-go packages to link Go
executables into PATH, instead of golang-go?

Many people would avoid installing golang-go package so as not to pull in
so many other packages that they don't need. I even go to the extreme and
didn't even install golang-1.8. Would it better to provide such choice for
them, instead of forcing them to install so many other packages that they
don't need?
