Here, the downloaded filename is "v0.4.775.tar.gz", which doesn't contain "you-get" anymore (we prefer it does so the base directory doesn't fill with opaque names, and this is checked by 'guix lint'). We usually fix this by adding

(file-name (string-append name "-" version ".tar.gz"))

to the package definition. However, is there some reason why the URL scheme should be changed? Alternatively, we could also source this package from PyPI given that is recommended on the you-get website. WDYT?

Thanks, ben.
