I don't know. Most of the functionality seems to be intact when it is missing.
However it would be nice to at least notify the user about the missing cairo,
and that it might break image funtionality. I am not in general very statisfied
when a program just picks up its runtime dependencies from whatever
environment it is run... but I feel it's not going to change soon.

Is there any way how we could extend a guix package receipe to list at least
the well-known optional runtime dependencies, and to describe what funtionality
do they add to a program, so the user could select what to install alongside?
