@max @sir I'd say "generics" ((type-)parametric structures/modules) is an important feature, although somewhat complex.
Being small and simple is an advantage, but only among the systems with roughly equivalent functionality. And there are languages/systems even simpler and smaller than it, yet more powerful.
@veer66 @amiloradovsky @max my concern is that this doesn't feel like a Go feature to me. Go has this awsome habit of sitting quietly on contentious features like generics for a while so all of the smart people involved in Go can have a good think on it, then finally coming out with an industry-shaking elegant solution to the problem. Go modules are a great example: it was shit for a long time and then a solution was found which puts every other dependency management solution to shame. I want to see the same thing happen for generics, and I'm prepared to wait as long as necessary for the right design to be found
