Dear Guix,

I have a question about the following patch to add emacs-ess.
Thanks, I was also making a half-hearted attempt at this.
Sorry for the duplicated effort.  I am happy to merge the two if you're
doing something more intelligent in your patch :).

Oh not at all, the half in 'half-heartedly' was very generous.

By default, the build files rely upon a LaTeX distribution to be
installed to generate a PDF from its Texinfo documentation.

I know that texlive is quite a heavy package, so should I separate the
output of this package in "out" and "doc", and substitute/patch the
involved Makefiles?
Have you tried texlive-minimal ?
I hadn't thought of that.  Good idea.  Would it be acceptable to use
texlive-minimal instead, without splitting it in two outputs?

As Ricardo suggests perhaps they should be native-inputs instead, in which case splitting the outputs doesn't help since we do not have output-specific inputs.
