You could always pass a message per line (so to speak) and use msgpack or json... if you want compression you could use json+gz

Of course, you could also do something similar with a 0mq adapter as well for a request/response server, which is available pretty much everywhere you might need it (language wise)... It's an interesting generic interface... however as I mostly use node for newer development, it's so trivial to use sockets or websockets directly for this, I'd just assume go that route... or for that matter, something like sockjs/shoe.
