vgo integration support

Package management has long been a topic of interest for many people in the Go community. A few months ago, the Go team put forward a new tool, based on the learnings from dep and other package managers. This tool is called vgo, and it’s backed by a new dependency solving algorithm called Minimal Version Selection, or MVS. All of this is described in great detail in Russ Cox’s blog post series.
