Thanks, happy new year to all the guix hackers!

Do we need a namespace "distro"? So far, there is only the sub-namespace "distro/packages". Could this not be contracted into the very prosaic "packages"? The distro would then simply be called "guix", no?
Maybe "gig" - "guix is guix", or "gis is gig", a recursive acronym with an exponential growth (to make fun of terminal recursion) and a certain zen appeal :-)
