Hi Guix,

wterm fails to start on the core-updates-frozen branch (commit 
ddbc3a6f4ca2605d8102aa659389300f97d715ac) in both sway and gnome wayland 
sessions:

```
$ wterm
wl_registry@2: error 0: invalid interface for global 11: have xdg_wm_base, wanted zxdg_shell_v6
# wayland_create_context: No wl_drm global
# wayland_create_context: No wl_shm global
# wld_wayland_create_context: Could not initialize any of the specified implementations
Can't create wayland context
```

However, wterm seems to be unmaintained upstream [0], so maybe this is not 
somethint that we want to fix in Guix.

Best,
Jack

I vote that we remove wterm from guix.  It is still unmaintained at the
github link below.  And it doesn't ever run properly.

Perhaps we could mark it as deprecated and point to Foot or WLTerm instead.

This sounds like the right thing to do.

Either of you feel like practicing a 'simple deprecation'?  ;-)

Kind regards,

T G-R

Sent on the go.  Excuse or enjoy my brevity.

I am going to try to close this bug report.  All further bug reports
