Sounds like a plan.  We can take this route and adjust if we stumble
upon incompatibilities.

Apparently we’d have 20 packages to audit:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
scheme@(guile-user)> ,use(guix)
scheme@(guile-user)> ,use(gnu)
scheme@(guile-user)> ,use(guix build-system waf)
scheme@(guile-user)> (fold-packages (lambda (p n)
                                      (if (eq? (package-build-system p) 
                                          (1+ n)
$2 = 20
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

We can do that incrementally, and patches going in that direction would
be welcome!

Thanks for your feedback,
