Comment (by boklm):

 > Would a patch be accepted that adapted the meek/obfs4/snowflake projects
 in tor-browser-build to use build_go_lib (or an executable-focused
 analogue of it)?

 I think yes, if it allows to cut down on boilerplate / code duplication
 and does not make things more complex.

 The reason I added `build_go_lib` was that all the go libraries are built
 in the same way, with little differences, so having some instructions that
 works for all of them was easy. For meek/obfs4/snowflake, there are lot
 more differences, so it's more difficult to do, and less clear whether it
 is worth it.
