Thanks for the answer. So there are only two options.

1. Create a patch for the package - that means bump up the version in the 
Cargo.toml and fix all the stuff in the code so that it works. Then send this 
PR to the project and include the patch in patches directory.

2. Include the required package definition in the Guix cargo-*.scm file even if 
there is a version similar to the one that I package or if the version is an 
older one.

The substitution is possible only in rare cases.

This is also probably applicable to other languages, right?
