Thanks!  Also, I'm sorry about accidentally opening like 10 bugs due to
my misconfiguration there.  I only noticed after the fact, that merely
CC'ing the original bug does nothing, when the mail is still sent to
guix-patches as well.  I've learned my lesson and will be more careful
in the future.

I do still have some open questions, though.

I'm not quite sure about the first sentence.  While everyone can read
the code and the output files produced from it, I think we should
document, that we actually always insert this line into
For instance, if you don't supply your own @file{}, the first
line of @file{daemon.conf} will be
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
default-script-file = /gnu/store/<hash>-pulseaudio-
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
What are your thoughts on this?

I was hesitant to do that due to the line limits.  Do those not count
for documentation or are such exceptions allowed?

Thanks again for your help and also thanks for your feedback.
