x/tools/go/pointer: extended query tuple indexing does not take flattening into account #27111

package main

type T struct {
	X *int

func id(x *int) (T, *int) { return T{new(int)}, x }

func main() {
	a := new(int)


t1 = id(t0)                                                   (T, *int)

the extended query x[1] will refer to T.X, not the second return value. The extended query parsing assumes that tuple offsets match node offsets 1 to 1, not taking into consideration that structs will be flattened, effectively yielding the tuple (T, *int, *int)

I intend on fixing this myself, eventually, unless someone beats me to it.
