Hello Guix!
These patches add UI hints so that grafting derivations can bedistinguished from more expensive derivations, as suggested byRicardo a while back.
The end result is something like this:
Toggle snippet (47 lines)$ ./pre-inst-env guix package -i libreofficeThe following package will be upgraded: libreoffice 6.1.3.2 → 6.1.3.2 /gnu/store/665s4yzjdih5hfyqj25hflxf838ddvhn-libreoffice-6.1.3.2

Overall this makes operations more transparent. Advanced userswill know what this means, and hopefully others will notice thatgrafting is a relatively fast operation and discover that it has todo with security updates.
Thoughts?

As a way to link Cuirass packages to tools like hpcguix-web. It's not apriority though.
