According to the manual "6.7.2 Package Naming", the associated string is
used for package management commands such as 'guix package' and 'guix
build'. Therefore, I think we should change them as well, so that the
users can install the packages using the command
"guix package -i octave-cli" and "guix package -i octave"
respectively. What do you think?
