Ah, that explains the build problem I met in my attempt to package
coccinelle... It surprised me since I read in the dune doc that jbuild
should be supported by dune. Maybe that doc is outdated...

Yep, I saw that, but I also tried "guix refresh -lr" and that gave a
huge list. Maybe that's not relevant, I'm still low on the
guix / guile learning curve...

This may be the path of least resistance, and would let us
handle problems without a flag day...

That is a question I cannot answer, I did not know about dune
before today ;-)

But I'll try to "dune upgrade" a few of them and we'll see where
this'll lead...

I was not expecting to fall in such a rabbit hole...
But this is fun, I'll keep at it.
