go/packages: add to standard library #30773
I'd like to make a few small breaking changes before we move go/packages to the standard library. At the least, we're not going to expose LoadFiles/LoadImports/LoadTypes/LoadSyntax/LoadAllSyntax in favor of users explicitly specifying what they need.
(The more opportunities to improve/fix go/packages without actually breaking people the better...)
@rsc Before we do this, I think we should have a discussion to make sure that we are okay freezing the API. I'll get in touch with you off line to discuss.
I personally would like some more time to find changes we'd like to make in go/packages before freezing it forever in the standard library, if we plan to do so.
