Have you ever peered into $GOPATH/bin only to wonder where all that stuff came from?

As someone who originally came from scripting languages where one could trivially peer into an 'executable' using an editor, the origin of binaries in that folder (specifically if GOPATH=~) was completely opaque to me. Not any more!

gorigin helps shed light on this by creating a list of binaries in all the bin folders in the GOPATH and marching through all the src folders in the GOPATH and reporting when a go package with a package name of main matches.
