That's the idea: they are run-time dependencies of a package that lacks
the ability for recording references to its dependencies. We have to
help the package with our packaging tools.

In general, all Python packages in Guix use this mechanism.

Just to clarify, does Calibre work on your end with my latest Savannah
branch? I built it on CI, so you can get substitutes for it on x86_64.

The basics work for me: library management, conversion, etc.

I think we're almost done!

Don't hesitate to send in your patches with a note like, "I didn't know
what to put here".
