Well, the output of "guix package --search" has different line breaks than
those present in the string of the description field. So something modifies
it, maybe the scheme interpreter itself in what it does with multi-line
strings, maybe the function you mention. In any case, "x.\nY" may be output
as "x. Y"; so if we wish to have double spaces in the output, we need to
write "x.  Y" on the same line.
