Yes, I agree.  For instance, as discussed after this old quick fix
[1].  Then I did some pair programming with jeko to have a v2.  The
idea is to have a common exception mechanism for all the importers.
Instead of case per case and scattered implementation through various
importers (proposed patch for opam, another example
guix/import/elpa.scm using &message etc.).  All the importers should
share the same interface for handling exceptions and errors.  Well, it
has never seen the light because time flies so fast and because at one
point, one needs to sit down and unknot all; personally, I have been a
bit lazy for completing the task. :-)
