I assume you mean 'guix lint -c refresh'. 'guix lint -c refresh foo' is
nice, but we don't have anything that could take the place of 'guix lint
-c refresh --recursive foo'

I just saw again 'guix refresh', 'guix refresh --recursive -m
my-manifest.scm' would be great.

I meant more like "hey, khard can be upgraded to 0.12.2, after I've
checked the upgrade with 'guix lint khard', now I'd like to check the rest
of the dependency tree with 'guix lint --recursive khard' to see if
anything else can be upgraded or has any linter errors."
