Hello Guix!

Just used `guix refresh enchive` and received this email from github:

> On February 12th, 2020 at 09:19 (UTC) your personal access token (guix 
> refresh) using GNU Guile was used as part of a query parameter to access an 
> endpoint through the GitHub API:


> Please use the Authorization HTTP header instead, as using the `access_token` 
> query parameter is deprecated and will be removed July 1st, 2020.

> Depending on your API usage, we'll be sending you this email reminder once 
> every 3 days for each token and User-Agent used in API calls made on your 
> behalf.
> Just one URL that was accessed with a token and User-Agent combination will 
> be listed in the email reminder, not all.

> Visit 
>  for more information.

> Thanks,
> The GitHub Team

I think the code responsible is import/github.scm:159

A tentative fix is attached, but I'm not sure how to test it

Thanks, Nicolò
