Sounds good.  Another option would be to install the udev rule as part
of the ‘usb-modeswitch’ package, which makes more sense and would solve
the problem.  But anyway, don’t lose your hair over it.

I don’t think it’s needed, is it?

I think it’s OK like this.  It does mean Guix’s
‘usb_modeswitch_dispatcher’ has an option that upstream doesn’t provide.
It would be worth proposing it upstream.
