I'll see first if I can get the closure smaller by other means. I think
it would be preferable to keep the tested operating-system as close as
possible to the default one.

Ok, I proposed a work around by introducing openssh-sans-x.

Some python bindings to sudo API, but I moved them to a separate
"python" output.

In fact there were a #:disallowed-references already, but its argument
was also wrong so it went unnoticed. I fixed all of that on core-updates

I'd like to re-introduce "canonical-packages", without breaking the
system cross-compilation, by using "let-system". See:

Yes, thanks for your first analysis :)
