cmd/gorelease: don't depend on order of requirements in go.mod

CL 237017 caused 'go list' to call modload.WriteGoMod once instead of
twice, which changed the order of requirements in a temporary go.mod
file created by gorelease. Previously, WriteGoMod was called once after
the go version was added, then again after packages were loaded. The
first call did not sort requirements, since packages hadn't been
loaded. The second call didn't write go.mod since no requirements were
missing and go.mod was not considered dirty.

This change makes it so gorelease will only report a diagnostic when
requirements are actually missing. the order of requirements no longer

This subrepository holds experimental and deprecated (in the old directory) packages.

The idea for this subrepository originated as the pkg/exp directory of the main repository, but its presence there made it unavailable to users of the binary downloads of the Go installation. The subrepository has therefore been created to make it possible to go get these packages.

Warning: Packages here are experimental and unreliable. Some may one day be promoted to the main repository or other subrepository, or they may be modified arbitrarily or even disappear altogether.

In short, code in this subrepository is not subject to the Go 1 compatibility promise. (No subrepo is, but the promise is even more likely to be violated by go.exp than the others.)

Caveat emptor.
