I disagree this is imported specific. Imagine we would like to provide
different still supported versions of e.g. Python (3,.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7)
or openssl (1.0 and 1.1).

This would improve the current situation :-)

I'm not convinced that adding a property to some 80 packages is better
than patching the importer.  To me this problem seems very
importer-specific (knowing what releases are considered LTS).

As a middle ground, perhaps we could add a "--select" argument to guix
import, e.g: "--select=REGEX    Only consider versions matching REGEX".

`guix refresh` always fetches the newest version of packages. This might
not be desired in all cases. E.g. one might want to keep some still
supported "major" upstream-version and not yet update to the next
"major" version.

Ludo suggested to add a property in packages that would instruct
updaters to restrict the version search space to a given regexp.

Rational: Example: KDE Plasma 5 has 5.12 as long-term-support (LTS)
version, while 5.14 has already being released. Do easy maintenance of
dependent packages, sticking to 5.12.x micht be desired.
