  Description     : Implementation of the Snappy compression format in Go
   This package contains a Go implementation of the Snappy compression format.

code.google.com/p/snappy-go (which is packaged as golang-snappy-go-dev)
has been moved to github.com/golang/snappy, but incompatible API changes
have been made since, so I see no sense in providing compatibility
symlinks and transitional packages.

github.com/golang/snappy is needed by github.com/golang/leveldb.
