Agreed here. I don't want to speak out of turn and am interested in what
Andy has to say here, but there are a few other Guix packages that do
not follow their naming conventions when they are intended to be used
alone. I think Idris is one. Perhaps it would confuse the end user if
they were to know whether they were getting libraries for the SBCL
environment to be able to hack on the package or if they were getting a
runtime executable to operate the package without the SBCL environment.
