Go vs C++ Implementation

Can someone explain why there are 2 implementations of the proof of concept one in Go-lang and the other in C++? Does the roadmap have both implementations?

    There's also a Python implementation.

    I believe part of the justification is that in a scenario where all miners are equally distributed between the 3 implementations, a bug that breaks one implementation, temporarily, won't bring down the network. There's some strength in having that diversity.

    I think it also allows more developers who are more comfortable with a specific language to more easily contribute.

    Not sure about the roadmap, though...
