... why?

I've checked the source code of poezio and it does not use aiodns, aiohttp.

In order to find that out:

$ guix build python-aiodns

Check resulting directory to find 

That means a user of the library would have to do 

  from aiodns import *


  import aiodns

So I grepped the whole source code of poezio, and it doesn't do that.  Hence
it is not a direct input.

It is a propagated-input in a dependency, which indeed does do the import.

You can't really trust what upstream says here.  Almost no package manager
has non-propagated inputs, so of course they wouldn't be saying "the input
such and such is propagated, and the input such and such is not propagated".

Thus you have to check it yourself.

Could you do so with the other dependencies before adding them?
