I doubt many users of Guix use RDP, disabling it in Vinagre until it
supports the new version of FreeRDP sounds reasonable to me. Otherwise
we're effectively "forking" FreeRDP, just for Vinagre.

That said, since we have the backported patch already, I'm fine with
either approach. But we should decide soon so Vinagre works again. :-)

The patch looks good to my untrained eyes.
