Sorry if I came across as too harsh. :o

FWIW I think I convinced someone to adopt dep in [community] as
independent from the existence of godep it would be nice to have
valuable ecosystem tools like this.

The godep maintainer will probably want to revisit whether it is worth
maintaining this after evaluating its continued (legacy) use in the
golang ecosystem.

We seem to have a fair number of AUR packages that still require it, so
this may be complicated.
