[NonGNU ELPA] New package: sweep

Hello emacs-devel,
Long time listener, first time caller :)

I would like to submit a new package to NonGNU ELPA, called "sweep":

sweep is SWI-Prolog Embedded in Emacs. Quoting from the manual[0]:

> sweep provides an interface for executing Prolog queries and consuming
> their results from Emacs Lisp.  sweep further builds on top of this
> interface and on top of the standard Emacs facilities to provide
> advanced features for developing SWI-Prolog programs in Emacs.

The aim of this package is to provide a fully integrated development
environment for SWI-Prolog[1] in GNU Emacs.  It does so by creating a
dynamic Emacs module that contains the SWI-Prolog runtime, which allows
us to leverage the SWI-Prolog analysis and introspection facilities
directly from Elisp.

The dynamic module ("sweep-module") is distributed and built as part of
the latest SWI-Prolog version, so the only files that need to be
distributed via the ELPA package are the Elisp package sweep.el and the
user manual.

sweep is licensed under the BSD-2 license, similarly to the rest of
SWI-Prolog.  Its source code is available at
https://git.sr.ht/~eshel/sweep and at

This project is still in active development, any comments or suggestions
will be appreciated!

I'm attaching below the proposed patch to nongnu.git:
