Okay, sometimes these non-code parts are actually the hardest! :)

I pushed as commit 706460a35754a47bf832a40de4f22271e7088226 with the
changes below.

I found that the software didn't work without the requests module, and
that the man page was being installed to a location that is not
idiomatic for Guix.

`trydiffoscope --webbrowser foo bar` is super nice!
