Hello Pierre,

Apologies for not getting attention to this patch for a long time.  Also
thank you for working on StumpWM package!  I've succeeded to build and
run it. Please, take a look onto my notes about your patch below.

Is there a reason to preserve an unmaintained ECL variant of StumpWM? My
guess is StumpWM users will stick to SBCL upstream version. Also
according to ‘M-x build-farm b =j ecl-stumpwm-18.05.x86_64-linux’
package is failed to build for a long time.  WDYT?

Please, add the following for Guix users with sbcl-stumpwm installed:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(define-public sbcl-stumpwm
  (deprecated-package "sbcl-stumpwm" stumpwm))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I think “Rename to stumpwm” and delete line “(stumpwm): ... this.” is
better, but no strict opinion on that.

Rather “[inherit, inputs, arguments]: Replace sbcl-stumpwm with
