Should this not be pushed to core-updates? `guix refresh -l` reports:

Building the following 190 packages would ensure 395 dependent packages
are rebuilt: [...]

That will take a while on Hydra, and in the mean time anyone trying to
install any dependent (or sub-dependent) package will have to compile
them locally.

Unless there is a security issue, isn't this exactly what core-updates
is for? Is `guix refresh recursive`? Many of the sub-depentents seem
like they have other dependents, affecting more than 10% of the tree.
