Usually in guix libraries also go in the same package and libglade-handy
gives the Glade "editor" libhandy "functionality". Sometimes we split up
packages in different "subpackages", but I don't think it's required
here. Libhandy will end up in the closure of GNOME sooner or later and
Glade is already in there (over libpeas -> totem).

Hmm, I'm not sure here, but you could try it :)

Fine :)

As I (also) per ordered a Librem 5, I dream as well from running Guix
system on it. Maybe I'll open a tracker bug to track all the things we
need to run Guix on Librem 5 :)
