following up a discussion from the GNUne mailinglist about how to slice
the software, I would like to learn about the best practice of packaging
huge packages in guix.

Assume gnuet will be delivered a one big TGZ, inclusing base-libs,
core-services, additional-services, guis for services. For e.g.
RPM-based distros the TGZ would be build once and then sliced into
packages like

- gnunet(-core)
- gnunet-gns-proxy
- gnunet-fs
- gnunet-fs-gui
- gnunet-conversation
- gnunet-conversation-gtk

When packaging with guix, one way would be to create several output (fs,
fs-gui, etc.). This would require uses to install e.g. "gnunet:fs-gui"
which is, well, curious for users.

What is the intened way to solve this in guix?
