Many projects have screwed up go modules, and require a different dependency management tool, such as raw go get... with traditional GOPATH in order to function. Please allow at (@) notation to facilitate this. Otherwise, developers have to resort to a lot of twisted shell script just to manage Go dependencies.

Please see #41330 (comment). A relevant part from that comment:

(You might ask: why not just add those things to GOPATH? The answer is: we did, and the result is Go modules.)

This statement is very broad and doesn't provide any references. What are these projects, and why is it that they require a different tool? It's not possible to investigate this issue without additional information.

If there's a specific issue with the cmd/go command that's preventing a specific project from using it, please file a new issue and provide details by filling in the template. We want to address such issues, and such a report would be very helpful.

The Go project doesn't use issue tracker for general discussion, please see golang.org/wiki/Questions for a list of better places to use.
