Hello, I'm having a hard time mapping scala ADT to protobuf. I tought that oneof would solve all my issues but ScalaPB create an intermediate class with the value.
Is there any workarround this ?
For example:
in Scala:
sealed trait TaskId
case class RunnerTask(id: SnippetId) extends TaskId
case class EnsimeTask(id: UUID) extends TaskId
in Proto:
message TaskId {
  oneof value {
    SbtRun sbtRunValue = 1;
    Ensime ensimeValue = 2;   

  message SbtRun {
    required SnippetId snippetId = 1;

  message Ensime {
    required UUID id = 1;
the issue is that I have something like: SbtRunValue(SbtRun(id))
in my opinion the SbtRunValue does not give much value.
I'm using the same technique, but it's a lot of boilerplate just to unwrap nested case classes

One thing you could do is to add an implicit method to TaskId that would pattern match on value and give you a presentation you like better
(if you prefer not using implicit conversion to add methods, you can also use a scalapb option that makes the generated TaskId message extends some trait that has the method above)
