I think it’s a good patch for upstream, but not for distros. As I see
it, the risk is that people hacking on Guix would come to rely on the
availability of a .pc file, and that code will break on other distros.
Likewise, the build process of other packages is subtly affected.
So I’m reluctant to making such changes in Guix proper, but I do agree
that it’s a good idea for upstream to adopt.
Does the EasyTag patch need to be adjusted? (I wanted to test but
there’s currently no webkit-gtk substitute so…)
