Hi Maxime,

Sorry for the late reply, I was out camping.

The patches I did submit upstream were not accepted and I agree with the
arguments of the maintainer so I won't add these to this package

Also, I did make a v2 but forgot to cc you, sorry about that:

Also did a v3 because the copyright line was missing (and failed to cc
you again):

That's a great tip and I will try and leap over my newby/shyness
feelings to get into that.  Getting feedback like yours has certainly
thought me a lot about what to look out for.  Thank you for your
feedback so far, also on the other patches I've submitted!

Just ran through them again and all seems to be fine.  I am not sure how
to prove I did.

What I should have written is I am moving and application from
ubuntu/debian to guix and am missing this package.  We already use a
custom channel to make development possible but in doing to I was
tickled by (guix)Creating a Channel mentioning:

  Before publishing a channel, please consider contributing your package
  definitions to Guix proper (*note Contributing::).  Guix as a project
  is open to free software of all sorts, and packages in Guix proper are
  readily available to all Guix users and benefit from the project’s
  quality assurance process.
