here's a scenario:
you're implementing in golang a generic component that can may be used with any type of proto message (binary serialization) and need to deserialize binary proto data without knowing its type at compile time.
for instance, i encountered this issue while writing a generic kafka json archiver, the component would:
- receive a message type (string) from configuration and a name of a kafka topic
- would need to create the binary -> memory deserializer and the memory -> json serializer at runtime.
how do you get a deserializer for your binary bytes just from the message name?
