gopls has a number of configurations, some of which are meant for users to set manually. The rest are used primarily to "hide" experimental features and are only meant for use by gopls developers and testers.

We should formalize the set of gopls configurations that we want to make public for users, and we should consolidate these configurations with the settings of gopls's clients, such as VSCode-Go, vim-go, govim, etc.

Current settings include:

"gopls": {
    // user-facing
    "env": {}, // the environment to use when loading packages
    "buildFlags": [], // the build flags to use when loading packages
    "usePlaceholders": true, // if the user wants placeholders when they complete an item
    "hoverKind": "FullDocumentation", // the amount of documentation to show on hover, one of NoDocumentation, Synopsis, SingleLine, FullDocumentation
    // experimental configurations
    "wantCompletionDocumentation": true, // if the user wants to see documentation in completion items
    "wantSuggestedFixes": true, // offer fixes to apply along with diagnostics
    "experimentalDisabledAnalyses": [], // list of analyses to disable in diagnostics
    "useDeepCompletions": true, // show completions for symbols in imported packages

We should add the settings used by clients to this issue to get a better understanding of how we can provide a more unified experience.
