Bug#879748: ITP: golang-github-alecthomas-repr -- Python's repr() for Go

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Anthony Fok <foka@debian.org>

* Package name    : golang-github-alecthomas-repr
  Version         : 0.0~git20171013.3757840-1
  Upstream Author : Alec Thomas
* URL             : https://github.com/alecthomas/repr

  Programming Lang: Go
  Description     : Python's repr() for Go

 The repr package attempts to represent Go values in a form that can be
 used almost directly in Go source code.
 Unfortunately, some values (such as pointers to basic types) cannot
 be represented directly in Go.  These values will be represented as
 &<value>, e.g. &23
   type test struct {
     S string
     I int
     A []int
   func main() {
       S: "String",
       I: 123,
       A: []int{1, 2, 3},
   &main.test{S: "String", I: 123, A: []int{1, 2, 3}}

Reasoning: Required by golang-github-alecthomas-chroma for hugo:
 Hugo 0.28 brings blistering fast and native syntax highlighting
 from Chroma.  A big thank you to Alec Thomas for taking on this
 massive task of porting the popular python highlighter Pygments to Go.
