oh to be more clear. Even with "#:skip-build? #t" on all the rust libs,
things fail if I omit one optional dependency from somewhere. I'm just
testing on hello-cli but hello-cli inculdes clap which has alot of
optional deps. In ./guix/build-systems/cargo.scm on line 186 it says 

"Cargo requires all transitive crate dependencies' sources to be
in its index, even if they are optional (this is so it can generate
deterministic Cargo.lock files regardless of the target platform or
features). Thus we need all transitive crate dependencies for any cargo
dev-dependencies, but this is only needed when building/testing a crate
(i.e. we will never need transitive dev-dependencies for any dependency

I haven't really dug into the cargo build-system yet but my guess is
that the problem lies there. Allllsooo i totally could have missed
something simple.. idk
