I've always wondered what's the recommendation for closing parentheses after
inline comments.

In general, I refrain from using inline comments so I would do this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
   (packages (append (list nvi fdisk
                           ;; mostly so xrefs to its manual work:
                           ;; partprobe:
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

My rationale here was that I've switched to "(append (list...))" until the 
first time we explain
cons*, then I left the cons*.
