bug#26264: [PATCH 0/1] Use '@' to separate name, version in package-full-name

Currently, when `guix refresh -l` is used, package names are emitted with a
This means the output from guix refresh -l cannot be used to issue guix
commands. This patch addresses the issue by adding an optional parameter
`for-ui` to `package-full-name`, which, when passed, results in package names
being emitted with the '@' separator.
There are several other approaches that could be taken:
* change the behaviour of package-full-name by default to use '@'. This would
result in significant semantic changes in different places in Guix, where
'-' is expected.
* Don't use package-full-name in guix refresh -l's `list-dependents`. Instead
just emit the package name, not the full name, or manually concatenate name
I prefer adding the optional parameter to full-name as `package-full-name` is
used in different places for emitting UI package names, and we probably want
to switch all of those to the '@' semantics over time.

packages: Add optional `for-ui` param to `package-full-name`.
