--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix size guix
total: 390.5 MiB

$ guix size guix xapian
total: 414.0 MiB

Some 24 MiB.  Actually Xapien comes with about 6 MiB of doc, so we could
move that out to a separate output.

Conclusion: Xapian is very light.
The only input that Xapian drags that's not in Guix is util-linux.
