No worries.  I have simply removed 'mps-youtube' from my profile and use
it with 'guix environment --ad-hoc mps-youtube -- mpsyt' instead.  The
difficult part was finding out which package propagated 'util-linux'.  I
used 'emacs-guix' and lucky guesses to find it (fortunately the profile
only contained 12 packages).

Is there a more convenient way to recursively show all propagated-inputs
of a given package?  It would be interesting to check how prevalent this
propagation pollution is (another example that comes to mind is 'jami',
which installs 125 programs under bin/, of which only about half can be
attributed to 'util-linux').
