Yeah, this is a problem, I don't like relying on "emacs-" prefix, but it
is probably the only reasonable way we have to determine emacs packages.
So prefixing all emacs packges with "emacs-" would be a good Guix
policy, I think.

BTW, there is another discussion related to this problem.  See the
bottom of <>.

I think all this stuff should be discussed in a separate thread (on
guix-devel mailing list).
