I believe that by spawning “guix repl” and using it as an inferior we
can remove the confusion, and we would make the separation of what is
library code and what is run-time code clearer.

Currently, that’s not what we’re doing.  Instead we use Guix as a
library (whatever version of the “guix” package is available in the
version of Guix used), and *also* use that version to install software.
That’s clearly not desirable, hence my email.
