Lightweight Emacs (or "GTK+ minimal)

Hi Guix!

I'm working on reducing some package closures.
Looking at Emacs, it drags:

- llvm
- mesa
- guile
- cups / ghostscript / hplip
- wayland

Turns out that it seems to be all because of GTK+ (to be confirmed).

1. Does anyone have a recipe for Emacs without GTK+ (that can also
   display pictures)?

2. Can we make a GTK+-minimal?
   At first glance, we could strip some 300 MiB from the the 700 MiB
   GTK+ closure size.
   Also I wonder why guile is in there.
