Sorry if I confused you.

The package I shared will need to be adjusted because I'm not sure how
to configure the copy-build-system. It was also in an early stage, and
the source itself will need some changes for the package to work. I
only sent it to help you test copy-build-system, since you asked for

The package as I sent it, even if changed to use the copy-build-system, 
is not ready to be sent to to guix because it will not find java or the
clojure jar built by guix. I already have a patch to correct this, and
intend to send it with the rest of the package when I can call
"clojure" from bash in an pure environment with the clojure package and
enter a clojure repl.

IIUC, copy-build-system is based on gnu-build-system, so it should work
the same with tarballs and directories. That means it should be a time
saver; I won't need to worry about changing things if I need to add a
patch to make a package work with what guix does. Thank you so much for
this build system :)
