Running ‘strip --strip-debug guix-daemon’ makes it go from 10 MiB to
just 1 MiB (this is C++!).

Also, guix-daemon is statically-linked against the Nix libraries,
whereas nix-daemon is dynamically linked against them.  Here,
/path/to/nix/lib/nix weighs in at around 2 MiB.

Does that answer your question?
