This started in 2010. Hopefully an illustration that go's developers are not against generics in general, this ought to quell some of the negativity... Pick one of the four proposals you like :)
Before, the default response was "we're thinking about it." Now, it's "let's all talk about it."
> Some people on the Go team have sunk considerable time in producing generics proposals, but they've all had serious drawbacks. I'm hoping those proposals will be published at some point so people can see the depth of complexity that generics bring; it's almost always underestimated.
Wouldn't the fact that this started 6 years ago and gone nowhere re-enforce the negativity?
