// Panics caused by user error (that is, everything except run-time panics
// such as "index out of bounds" errors) do not leave the file that caused
// them, but are instead turned into plain error returns. Encoding and
// decoding functions and methods that do not return an error either use
// panic to report an error or are guaranteed error-free.
// A gobError is used to distinguish errors (panics) generated in this package.
