Unfortunately installing them all on a system will mean you get statically
compiled duplicate copies of containers/storage and containers/image. I think
in recent go versions "shared library" support has been getting better. Could
we start to do some of this for our go tools that use common libraries?

Yeah, that "share" means just using the same libraries not sharing them in memory. 
But the golang shared library compilation and linking is definitely something people are already looking into. I believe Vincent Batts did something in the past but it's OT for this thread i guess.
