Thank you for making this amazing time-saver!

Attached is an early version of a good candidate. It's a wrapper script
for clojure taken from from clojure's brew installer.

src/main/resources/clojure should be moved to bin/
j should be moved to bin/

doc/clojure.1 should be moved to share/man/

And unless there's a sufficient reason not to,
epl.html could be moved to share/doc/clojure-1.10.1/

Everything else could probably be ignored.

Since I'm patching one of the scripts to play better with guix, the
source will become a tarball. I would rather not worry about extracting
everything, moving some things, and deleting what is not used.

If your patches are pushed before you get this, I will make the package
myself. But it's a complex yet useful example of a package that would
be simpler with the copy-build-system, so you can check how easy it is
to change from trivial-build-system and test how well copy-build-system 
works with subdirectories.
