Confusion regarding rust packages in guix

I'm trying to package [helix](, a text editor written in rust. I'm unsure how to write the actual package though. The layout is seemingly straight forward - I found a random rust package already in guixpkgs and just copied the config - but when it comes to `cargo-inputs` and `cargo-development-inputs`, I'm not sure what to do. Do I have to define every single variable in `cargo.lock`? For bigger projects this seems like an incredible amount of work. Why does the guix system require packages to be pulled from guix repos when nix just reads the `cargo.lock` and pulls it from or something? Is that not also deterministic, since that's the entire point of the `cargo.lock` file? In the flake that helix provides : , the individual dependencies are not defined. Am I missing something, or is this just how its done?
