I'm gonna have to get rid of these two Go programs. Just download the binary and move it to /usr/local/bin sounds nice until you realize you have to do that by hand every time they release a new version.

Having to run 3-4 commands every time an RSS entry shows up is infinitely more difficult than doing literally nothing, which is how I get upgrades for literally every single other application on this server. And no, I will not be writing a script to poll the RSS feeds and install new versions automatically. I have a package manager already.
