It `builds' and installs...now to figure out how to configure and hook
it up with mcron and how to run mcron.

Also, its bash scripts.  Well, if it works...

Ludovic sent a WIP mcron service to guix-devel recently; you might take
a look at that. Alternatively, I run mcron for my user only and it works
as expected.

That patch is missing from this patch ;)

Nit-picky, but I think the order should be: source, build-system,
arguments, inputs. At least, source should be first.

I think the description should contain the string "Rottlog" or
"rottlog", to make searching easier.
