I agree.

‘--debug’ here is really shorthand for ‘--ad-hoc debugging-essentials’.
More accurately: ‘gnu-linux-c-debugging-essentials’. It seems better if
users compose such things themselves.

Then again, I haven't used GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH & friends yet, so I've no
idea how (un)pleasant it is.

Kind regards,
