This patch is 460K uncompressed. gzip reduces it to 124K. Currently
`guix pull` downloads a 10.2 MiB tarball. Just food for thought ;)
Heh.  AIUI, the patch simply removes files; it’s more space-efficient
and clearer to do it in a ‘snippet’.

The idea is actually to revert the deletion (of the test files).

Instead of including the 'revert' patch taking up space, I sourced the patch from GitHub as a native-input and applied it in reverse, and pushed this series.

Thanks for picking this up.
