But they don’t end up in the installed system, do they?  Normally we
install bare-bones.tmpl as is, right?

Dunno, it seems to me that the limit this commit modifies is that of the
installed system (i.e., bare-bones), not that of the installer itself.

That said, we should also be careful about the size of the installer, so
it’s worth running ‘guix size’ to check how much these packages add and
whether we can strip that.
