Thanks for this — it's definitely a big help. Now though, this would mean I'd 
then have “my-curl” installed in my profile and on the next “guix pull” it 
would still try to build “curl” with the tests and fail… 

Do you think, if I save it as curl.scm and then install it — it would have the 
desired effect of installing it in my profile as “curl” and then the “guix 
pull” could proceed further as it would have a working “curl” installed?
