Oh. I didn't know MELPA had such a policy. This is a good point. It's
nice to try to stick to whatever MELPA does, as they've pretty much
become the authority in Elisp packaging IIUC.

Although, for the sake of cleanliness, they enforce a project layout
that discourage the organization of a project in subdirectories, which I
find a bit strange. But if the lack of complaints about it in the MELPA
issues tracker tells anything, it doesn't seem to be much of a bother
for most projects (this might have to do with the fact that until
recently most Elisp projects were organized as a single file of
thousands of lines of code ;).

I've decided to go with the flow and modify ert-runner so that it
includes the elisp files under the 'reporters' subdirectory. I've also
factorized out the default args of the include and exclude option of the
emacs-build-system install phase. Please see the two patches attached.

Subject: [PATCH 1/2] build-system: emacs: Factorize include/exclude default

The `install' phase of the emac-build-system builder side contained arguments
duplicated from the higer level `emacs-build' procedure. This change
factorizes them so that:

1. They are not duplicated;
2. They can be reused and extended easily when defining Emacs packages.

* guix/build/emacs-build-system.scm (%default-include): New symbol.
(%default-exclude): Likewise.
(install)[include]: Use %default-include variable.
[exclude]: Use %default exclude variable.
