With the discussion on IRC following your message, I ended up going back
to the solution that appends /2.22 to the GUIX_LOCPATH entries

We’ll settle on that and declare the problem solved now.  :-)

Sorry for the hesitations.  It’s one of these situations where we have
conflicting principles: simplifying the users lives, and remaining close
to what upstream does.
