Just did a pull, upgrade my packages and now magit works as expected.

Yeah, that's the path I'm going to take to avoid future headaches. And I
just got my first contribution merged into guix (yay!). I got some
feedback on what I did wrong. Which I'll try and not to repeat in the
coming package definitions I'm planing to make (cargo (the emacs mode),
flymake-shellcheck, glsl-mode and meson-mode).

Question regarding the emacs-xyz.scm. I see it is divided into four
different categories; Emacs hacking, Web browsing, Multimedia and
Miscellaneous. But what is the order for the package definitions in
those categories?
