Looking at the two attached files I want to bring attention to the size
of them:
after.scm   [text/plain, base64, utf-8, 5.7K]
before.scm  [text/plain, base64, utf-8, 226K]

One way to fix this (in addition to your "default to the don't build"
argument) is to keep rust-clap in it's broken state and define a
different rust-clap for when we actually want it and to have that use
enough inputs to actually build. I do now actually realize that only
really works if we keep all the crates hidden, which I don't think we
want. So I guess that has us sending bug reports upstream that some of
the optional dependencies aren't actually optional.

In any case, I think it'd be better to skip the optional dependencies
and then add them back in as needed to actually build the crates we
