First maybe that is because of text messages and you don't see a face
but your messages sounds a bit passive agressive, but independent from
that I am happy to get a answer, so thanks.

I thought that meaned to be example code to extend such code, but I
english is not my first language and I might read not everything
extremely carefully.

Yes and no, I reported 3 weeks ago:

So if there would be a direct way to access the hwdb capability of udev
service I would be happy to not use this hack, but for now I priotise
something running over something done the right way, I am good at elisp
but not so good with guile or with understanding the guix architecture,
I try to get a laptop in a usable shape so that I can maybe start being
more productive use the emacs module and well over time learn. I don't
want to become a guix / scheme expert just to get my keyboard working on
my laptop which is my second installation after my netbook on which I
will not code much for guix.

I am totally open to better solutions but if I have to write 10 messages
in 3 weeks I take what I can get, to get the system working.

I will test that and report back, thanks for the info.

Maybe I will, just currently more into some elisp/emacs projects.
