golang now has native support for OpenBSD's pledge(2)
Contributed by grey on Thu Mar 23 08:37:28 2017 (GMT)
from the it's got better provenance than C++ dept.

Google's golang, collaboratively developed by Unix and C pioneers like Ken Thompson, Rob Pike et al has been very BSD friendly (the language itself is BSD licensed) and it just got even friendlier for OpenBSD's pledge mechanism.

To quote the diff:

"unix: add support for OpenBSD pledge

Pledge, the privilege-restricting syscall and mitigation mechanism, was missing from syscall_openbsd.go. As of the latest release, it is officially supported in 'stable'."
