This is great! I learned about PaperWM from your patch, and I've been having
lots of fun with it.

Seeing "compiled" here caught my attention. Since all we are doing so far is
copying files around, I expect everything to be in source form.

In this case the compiled file is a compiled glib schema. I've prepared a
second version of the patch that removes this file in a source snippet and
compiles it from the source in a new build phase.

This is another testament to the usefulness of the copy-build-system. It would
have been much more work to make the same modification to a package that uses
the trivial-build-system. Thanks Pierre!
