We don't embed any source copies, this is just *example code*. The user needs to pull in go.net/websocket himself if he wants to build it.

I can do the "build to check it compiles" thing later when go.net/websocket enters Debian, but if we wait for that, this would be blocking release on a *very non-essential* item.

Setting GOPATH like this is exactly what dh_golang does. I only override it this way because dh_golang is not flexible enough, like I explained in my last email. *I cannot use dh_golang.*
