I do not have a strong opinion either.  On the other hand, all the
changes are incremental over a relatively large period of time, other
said, each change is not revolutionary but all in all, they can be
considered as.  The revolution of the Sun is made by 365 small changes
and each day compared one by one looks really similar – aside climate
change or tropical/equatorial latitude – and at the end, seasons appear.

Anyway, I won’t mind equally. :-)

To me,

 - adapt the importers with the new style is also a thing
 - various guix home minor fixes discussed [1] by Xinglu, Andrew and
   Ludo, a blog post would be neat too. :-)
