The package definitions look almost the same, except for:

  * #:cargo-inputs and #:cargo-development-inputs are moved to
    'inputs'/'propagated-inputs' and 'native-inputs'
  * For a few packages, #:features ~'(...) needs to be added
  * antioxidant-build-system doesn't look at version numbers,
    so the numbers of variants of packages that needs to be defined
    could perhaps be reduced
  * Cycles are not supported

The fourth point might make things difficult though I have some ideas
on how to resolve it (without simply disabling tests)  (TBI!). 
Otherwise, I don't see much complications with importing packages.
