... and I would expect this version to ship in Debian for another ~3-5
years, unless it gets removed from Debian bullseye before the upcoming
(real soon now) release!

But if lzip substitutes are still supported, I *think* guix 1.2.0 as
packaged in Debian still supports that, at least.

Dropping both gzip and lzip would be unfortunate; I don't think it would
be trivial to backport the zstd patches to guix 1.2.0, as it also
depends on guile-zstd?

live well,
