Do you think Go might have better DB libraries if generics ever land? Or what else might be holding it back?

I don't know. I wrote a code-generating ORM for my own projects, which is what I use. But lack of generics isn't, for example, what makes Go projects hew so closely to net/http and net/http compatible interfaces, rather than the more elaborate interfaces people write in Python and Ruby; there's also just a "less is more" ethos in Go-world.
