That’s right.  The importer does not know where the generated package
definition is supposed to be used.

It uses a prefix because we use the “zlib” package often, but not the
“zlib” license.  We could exclude the “zlib” license from (guix
licenses), or import only a specified list of licenses, or we can solve
this naming conflict by prefixing all values from (guix licenses) with
“license:” (or anything else, really).

Really small modules often don’t have this problem in the first place,
so they don’t need to find a solution to work around the naming
