Thanks. I understand, its a bit surprising that something like error handling has not been quite well addressed by the standard lib.

For what its worth I’d like to see the following make it s way to standard lib:

  • Improved nomenclature to avoid misunderstandings like these
  • Any library should be able to provide a source of truth to the data and how one views it is programmatic choice. Providing a default implementation to view in say %+v easy reduced verbosity (awesome) is great but I hope the standard lib will address this short coming (as I view it).

I wont state matured examples from other languages to start any trolling but I think experienced developers can comment on what they feel about it.

…without quoting anyone; through a different channel the grapevine has it pkg/errors maybe deprecated.
