Is it idiomatic in Go for the module containing main.go to be called main? Or should it match the last path element of go.mod?

@djmoch The default for 'go build' is to name the resulting binary after the file that contains main, isn't it? So the file with main in it should be 'project name'.go ...

@jim I thought about that, but I can also confirm that’s not the case if you’re using go.mod
