Isn’t that what ‘wrap-script’ does?

Not good!  :-)

This Meson issue is not a regression compared to master, is it?

How about providing a user-facing ‘meson’ package that incorporates this
fix, while keeping the other ‘meson’ packages unchanged, to avoid
rebuilding too much?  This can be achieved by marking the other packages
as hidden.

Could you check ‘guix gc --references meson’ to make sure it does not
capture too much?  (GUIX_PYTHONPATH might contain references to
build-time dependencies.)

I suppose GUIX_PYTHONPATH contains the package’s “out”, right?
