testing/protocmp: automatically promote message values

For user convenience, automatically transform message values by
shallow copying them if necessary. Storing messages as values is
frowned upon, but is sometimes done by APIs that a user does not own.

Next Generation Go Protocol Buffers

WARNING: This repository is in active development. There are no guarantees about API stability. Breaking changes will occur until a stable release is made and announced.

This repository is for the development of the next major Go implementation of protocol buffers. This library makes breaking API changes relative to the existing Go protobuf library. Of particular note, this API aims to make protobuf reflection a first-class feature of the API and implements the protobuf ecosystem in terms of reflection.
