You can test with ‘guix pull’ (you need to make sure to specify the
right file:// URL *and* branch), or you can run “make as-derivation”.

That’s one possibility.

The patch below takes another approach.  I think it aesthetically
slightly more pleasant because we don’t have to play ‘resolve-module’
tricks for obscure reasons.  WDYT?

(It also fixes a format string argument mismatch.)
