I was thinking of the Python code in ntpclients/ and pylib/
Is there anything in there that is time sensitive?

There are lots of ways to inject timing bumps before we get to garbage 
collecting.  cache, scheduler, interrupts, CPU speed, ...

Do you have any data on Go GC times?

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
