Very nice.

Yes, on c67becb31c30a5cd7685f166970ac4793e3a34a9 running
"./pre-inst-env guix build --system=i686-linux bootstrap-tarballs" gives me 
exactly this,
also for guile-static-stripped! \o/

Good catch.  We probably can, we might try that.

I think the need for updating to bb062b0 has been removed during the
review of the integration of the reduced binary seed bootstrap into
core-updates by Ludovic.

For historical reasons, I think this mescc-tools commit

was needed at a time that we did not have mescc-tools or mes in

using a externally (outside fo Guix) built mescc-tools-seed and
(an almost pure ASCII) mes-seed.
