Follow-up to https://issues.guix.gnu.org/56706 „gnu: Tryton application 
and framework: Update to 6.2.x.“.

In general Guix is a rolling release distribution. Thus IMHO tryton 
should be updated.

Anyhow I understand that we need a LTS variant for GNU Health and other 
conservative users. We could create a „tryton-lts.scm“ which holds the 
LTS versions, inherited from the current release. Creating such a file 
is expected be to not much of a problem.

WDYT?

For the records: Tryton 6.0 was available up to at least 2022-08-09 
(commit 02de6a59813df9dd839117669535118f1b798ed4). So versions and 
hashes can be picked from there. Or even the tryton-scm at that version 
could be used as a base for tryton-lts.scm.

Please also note: The packages can be kept up-to-date easily using my 
tooling at https://codeberg.org/htgoebel/tryton-guix-helpers (and the 
upcoming “refresh to version“ feature).
