The manifest is not standardized, or rather, there are too many
competing standards.

If we are going to unbundle packages, I think it would be best if our
code ignored any manifest files entirely. Versioning is a mess in the Go
ecosystem, and usually the version specified in them only reflects the
most recent commit that the developers had on their machine when they
ran the vendor command. Rarely is it an actual tagged, stable release.

BTW, the following command will probably be useful. It lists the
dependencies of the current package (whose source is in the current
directory), minus the stdlib.

    go list -f '{{join .Deps "\n"}}' | xargs go list -f '{{if not

I hope that helps!
