Go 1.18 supports generics

Go (finally) supports generics in the version 1.18. My favorite editor, GoLand, took a while to fully adopt generics. I have played around with them over the past days and like them so far. Although almost nothing beats the simplicity of interface{}, I do like the warnings when the wrong type is being used. I am curious to see when the popular libraries adopt generics.
