Sure, but keep in mind this adds 'glibc' to the closure (IIUC, packages
like 'hello' use a different glibc, from %final-inputs in (gnu packages
commencement)), so maybe best use (canonical-package glibc) instead?

(*) IIUC, (guix self) isn't used from any package module, so no cycle
problems, can be imported directly.
