Hi Julien,

Thanks for your reply!

Oh… Oh… grafts! 🤯

"Confused" is the appropriate word, indeed! 😅

The thing is, I've been (for the last few months! 😱) in the process of
writing home services definitions to replace **all** my configuration files,
so I run **a lot** of `guix home reconfigure`. The command usually takes 30
seconds to run, but right after I `guix gc` it takes 10 minutes. So I
guess I should stop collecting garbage for the time being, which is most
inconvenient for it saves more than 4Go of disk space.

Thanks for the enlightenment!
