I have been using this series for everything, including my daily
driver, since submitting this patch.

It works fine and most importantly works with both the old vendor/
approach as well as the new go.mod approach.

In this version of the series the Go compiler is never asked to
download anything. It merely replaces the old "gopath" hacks that were
in place before. A future patch series on top of this one would add
support for Go downloading packages as well, however, for now that is
not part of this series. This is as minimal as possible.

I recommend merging the series as is (in v3) as soon as possible.

Best regards,
Christian Stewart
