INNODB Tablespace Copy in Go Lang

I just uploaded a quick tool that I think you will find useful if you need to consolidate, expand innodb databases if tablespaces are in use.

This golang application will copy an entire innodb database from one server to another server via scp.
innodb-tablespace-copy follows the algorithm described here. This golang application copies 4 tables in parallel after setting up the remote environment. Then in parallel import the tablespaces. I've only used this application on Percona XTRADB 5.6 but it should work for all flavors of innodb that are out there.

Note to recover from interruption, this is done manually either by discarding the tablespace or by dropping the remote database.

Feel free to add to it and make it better :)
