It’s OK if the ‘origin’ denotes a file that is not a tarball.

However, the build procedure will have to pay attention for that.  For
instance, the default sequence of phases of ‘gnu-build-system’ includes
an ‘unpack’ phase, which is inappropriate here:

There are a couple of examples, e.g., paredit in emacs.scm.  Most of
them use ‘trivial-build-system’, which requires explicitly writing the
build/install operations.
