I struggle regularly with the terminology used in software
distributions. Perhaps someone appreciates my favorite act of civil
disobedience: I use "prerequisites" to talk about packages required by
those that "consume" them.

Here, I would have used "consuming packages" instead of dependents,
because the former is so clearly distinct from the ubiquitous but
ambiguous word "dependencies".

Happy hacking, and thank you all for your contributions to Guix!

Kind regards
