I you just add another meson@0.60 package like this patch does, the UI
will complain that “meson@0.60” is ambiguous, that there are two of them.

To work around it, I’d mark the unwrapped meson@0.60 as hidden (using
the ‘properties’ field) while keeping the other one visible.

That way “guix install meson” will install the wrapped one.

Does that make sense?
