How does coc-go compare to vim-go?**

With coc-go I do not aim to recreate the features of vim-go. For now, the main goal is to provide a convenient way to install gopls and use it with coc.nvim.

If you need more than the features provided by gopls, you are probably better of with vim-go or govim.
