Pre-releases are better than a broken or missing package :-).  I guess
it depends on our users: is someone actively using the Guix-provided
renpy package to publish games?  Since the package was broken 2 weeks
ago without a bug report, I'd assume that no, in which case a
pre-release is fine and more forward-looking in this situation.

Are all the above Python 2 dependencies already in the Guix-Past
channel?  If so, it seems that it could be decent option to keep renpy 7
there until renpy 8 is made stable, if updating to the pre-release in
Guix proper is too difficult.
