Hello Guix,

Version 78 of the upstream Chromium project was released yesterday, with
the usual amount of security fixes:

Unfortunately the 'ungoogled-chromium' variant in Guix is still stuck on
version 76.  The reason is that we rely on Debians patches, which have
gone stale:

I plan to remove 'ungoogled-chromium' and 'ungoogled-chromium-wayland'
in a few days, unless someone is willing to port the patches.  I can
help extracting just the few changes we need, but do not have time nor
motivation to port them to the newer version myself.

Here is a preliminary patch:
