I doubt it.

$ ./pre-inst-env guix gc --references `./pre-inst-env guix build profanity`

So it keeps a runtime reference to python.  I suspect it just embeds a Python
interpreter.  So it should probably be a regular input.
The question is whether the plugins written in Python actually work or not.
Usually they require some extra PYTHONPATH or whatever setting in order to
find stuff.  Just raw Python is often not enough.

But we'll see.

Moved python-wrapper to regular input.

Pushed patchset to master.

I edited the commit messages not to include internal rationale like that that
change is the correct change (for glib-or-gtk-build-system) or whatever.

If we need that it should go in the source code as a comment--where it can
be easily seen.
