In my experience with antioxidant, not-up-to-date Rust toolchains do
not prevent upgrading packages -- in the process of resolving build
failures, I updated some crates.  This never resulted in a ‘you need an
new toolchain error’.  At worst, I had to disable the "unstable",
"nightly" or "generic-simd" features of the crate.

There are a lot of outdated crates in Guix, but AFAICT this is
unrelated to the newness of the toolchain.

I don't know about Go.
