If I am not mistaken, the XS-Go-Import-Path cannot be queried with
dpkg-query since it is a field in the source package. What do you
think of adding an XB-Go-Import-Path to golang-*-dev packages?

Querying this field for 'golang-*-dev' to match the import paths
output by `go list` would appear to be a lot faster than invoking
`dpkg -S /usr/share/gocode/src/…` for each import path.
