Yes, and it's not so important in which module what is.  The module
name is not part of the package name anyway, so we are mostly using
it to manage compilation complexity (sigh).  Developers can find it
using "guix edit rcm" anyway.

I try not to introduce a new module for each package because it leads
to a lot of file header duplication, and at some point the comment/code
ratio is getting ridiculous--but, technically, even that would be fine.

Looks fine.

From your description, try (#:parallel-tests? #f) instead of (#:tests? #f).

Nice work!

Some test scripts still have /bin/sh
