‘guix import cpan’ feels like giving it a shot.  :-)

More seriously, if Valgrind testing is optional, it’s OK to leave it out
IMO.  The other tests would be nice to have, and the Perl packages are
probably easy to import if you wanted to try, but that shouldn’t be a
blocker IMO.

You can add an ‘origin’ in ‘inputs’.  It would be preferable than adding
it as a patch, indeed.

Would you like to give it a try?
