The reason appears to be that when not translating (using the first
attached patch that reverts back to @pxref{Packages with Multiple
Outputs}), po4a-translate transforms

Take a look at the profile reported by @command{guix size}
(@pxref{Invoking guix size}).  This will allow you to notice references
to other packages unwillingly retained.  It may also help determine
whether to split the package (@pxref{Packages with Multiple Outputs}),
and which optional dependencies should be used.  In particular, avoid adding
@code{texlive} as a dependency: because of its extreme size, use
@code{texlive-tiny} or @code{texlive-union} instead.


address@hidden address@hidden guix
with Multiple

with the pxref split over three lines because the surrounding context
has no space characters.  doc/’s xref_command can only deal
with two lines however.

The second attached patch makes xref_command grep three-line
references too, so it finds the translation, *however* I cannot get
this multiline sed to actually insert the translation into three line
references.  Perhaps it would be better to just replace this complex
xref_command with Guile code?  I will not do it however.

I am Cc’ing the address@hidden; I hope this is OK.
