anything I can help with? or should I stay focused on other Go work?
I'm happy to do tedious things like updating all call sites hehe

not that i know of… i think that i can actually completely punt on public API changes in the initial fix. but you can probably help with the followup?

i’ll push it, but i don’t know if i’d recommend spending time on it… i’m debugging something so simple that i’m amazed it’s not working
this is all it is: https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/compare/main...stuhood:stuhood/prototype-interfaces … as you demonstrated on the PR, this works fine for at least one of our unions. my guess is that some other
@union
requires more than the single provided parameter in practice… but due to error messages, it’s not obvious which one it is
i’ve got to run. but i think that my next step would be to binary search the list of `@union`s that are registered to see which ends up requiring more than the provided param

binary search how so?
Also I can work on the Python interface for this? Might make it easier to experiment

it looks like everything here was fairly shallow, although it took a lot of scrapping to figure that out. pheew.

someone really ought to work on these damn error messages! 🤒
