Hello all,

This is a set of patches to add CBQN (and the packages required to build it
from source) to the official Guix repository.

CBQN is the recommended implementation of the BQN language, which is a new
array programming language in the same vein as APL, K, Q, J, Dyalog APL,
etc. Even better than most of those, it carries a FSDG compatible license
(the implementation is even under single-license GPL!) and so I feel as
though it should definitely be a part of GNU Guix.

While there are still a few outstanding issues I hope to address with those
upstream eventually (all documented in the comments), I believe I have
followed the guidelines in the manual. Please let me know what I can improve,
and how I might expedite this awesome language's inclusion in GNU Guix.

Please let me know if this is acceptable. I'm willing to make any other
changes needed.

I'll start working through the other patches and apply the given
feedback from this one as well, in the meantime.

Nevermind my remarks on hexadecimal, octal would be better I think, like 
lilyp wrote.

+;; src/BQN/types/callable/builtins/fns/EpsBuiltin.java:45:71:
+;; …<snip> // TODO these (and in ⊐) shouldn't be random numbers
+;; Reported Upstream Here: https://github.com/dzaima/BQN/issues/14
+;; This issue therefore means that none of the packages for bqn can be checked
+;; for non-determinism at this time, as dbqn is a prerequisite for all of
