Hi Felix,

Thank for working on that.

As an end-user, I prefer regular packages 'dune-*' without the input
'openmpi' and so with the related tests disabled and then their
variants; say 'dune-*-openmpi' with the input 'openmpi' correctly
setup-ed, as in your patch.

Usually, 'guix refresh -l' lists the packages that would need to be
rebuilt when upgrading a particular one.

All the best,
