Any chance we can get this in for go 1.10? It would be really nice to get this in sooner than later. I reckon that this change can go in, as it doesn't affect running programs, but it makes a useful tool much better. Waiting for go 1.11 means waiting until August/Sept 2018 - a very long time away.
@ugorji 1.10 is only five weeks away, so this is already the last stage of bugfixing. New features are very unlikely to be merged this late.
It's also worth pointing out that godoc (as part of golang.org/x/...) is not distributed with Go. I'm not sure why the Go1.11 milestone was used, as opposed to the Unreleased one. Perhaps that's related to what will run on godoc.org, as opposed to what will be available via go get.
@mvdan exactly my point. Since this is not distributed with go, then can we possibly get this in sooner than August/Sept 2018? It feels like we're almost there - and there's no train saying we have to wait for 8/9 months.
