`guix size <package>' reports the size of the entire dependency tree,
not just the one package you specify. Notice that `guix size <package1>'
and `guix size <package2>' add up to more than `guix size <package1>
<package2>'. This is because <package1> and <package2> share parts of
their dependency trees.
