Install/update golang on Ubuntu

The nice folks of labix.org (In-flight deb packages of Go) pointed out that there is a quite sweet solution to that. You can install the newest version of Googles Go with:

wget https://godeb.s3.amazonaws.com/godeb-amd64.tar.gz -O go  
# wget https://godeb.s3.amazonaws.com/godeb-386.tar.gz -O go
tar xvzf go  
./godeb install
rm -rf go  
rm -rf godeb  

Another credible and working PPA channel would be welcomed nonetheless. Anyone?
