    Now, am I going to do the same with a library like goderive just so I can use FP techniques to get, amongst some other things, less nil checks? No. Probably not. If I wanted to use primarily FP techniques in my code, I would probably be using something else in the first place. Go isn't a great environment for guaranteeing immutability for starters, so anything like that is necessarily going to be an incomplete experience. And in the bargain, my code would, in my opinion at least, be less readable and maintainable.
