Indeed it would not pass tests, thanks for the patch.

Well there is some huge rebuild involved, but there is something else
happening here, the zstd package as a specification now refers to 
zstd@1.4.9 and not zstd@1.4.4 (as grafted) because the version is
newer, I should've made the zstd@1.4.9 graft package definition private
here as I do now for other grafts.

$ ./pre-inst-env guix refresh -l zstd
Building the following 2 packages would ensure 2 dependent packages are
rebuilt: ecl-zstd@1.0-1.d144582 cl-zstd@1.0-1.d144582

We see only 2 here, but it's a false result, zstd is a dependency to
way more,

Then if we do this:

$ ./pre-inst-env guix refresh -l zstd@1.4.4
Building the following 5115 packages would ensure 10443 dependent
packages are rebuilt

There we are, almost all packages need to be rebuilt.
