A compiling Go REPL.

Builds up Go source as the session goes on, compiles and runs it with every input.

A "!" in front of the input means it's in "unstable" mode, e.g. a package has been imported and isn't used, or errors occur in the source.

Example session:

Welcome to the Go REPL!
Enter '?' for a list of commands.
> ?
Commands:
    ?   help
    + (pkg) import package
    - (pkg) remove package
    -[dpc]  pop last (declaration|package|code)
    ~   reset
    : (...) add persistent code
    !   inspect source
> a := 6
> b := 7
> println(a * b)
42
> + fmt
! fmt> fmt.Println("Hello, world!")
Hello, world!
! fmt> println("This won't work since fmt doesn't get used.")

Now it will!
