More accurately, I think there was no consensus around the proposed
changes.  Ricardo and I argued in favor of honoring ‘INSIDE_EMACS’ and
disabling colors when it is set.

In terms of process, I think it’s a case where we should make sure the
people involved in the discussion can come to an agreement before going
further (info "(guix) Commit Access").

Great, thanks for filing upstream bugs!

As I wrote elsewhere, we avoid working around terminal bugs in Guix
itself.  In this case, the bugs are in an old VTE version and about to
be fixed in Eshell, both of which are good reasons not to try to paper
over it in Guix.

I see reluctance to the proposed changes in

agree with Ricardo’s concerns).

To me, that suggests at least that further discussion would have been
needed before pushing these three commits.

What should we do now?
