Hi Guix!

This is my first guix package -- I have some texlive, ocaml and emacs packages 
missing for my installation, so I thought it would be best to share them!

I renamed the package, updated its definition, set propagated inputs,
and applied it. Thank you for the initial work.

You make a fair point with the source distribution, but unfortunately,
it didn't raise much interest so far. It might be worth asking it on
Guix Devel ML.

Meanwhile, I'm closing this bug.
