In <http://elephly.net/posts/2015-04-17-gnu-guix.html>, Ricardo notes:

  At some point I think it would make sense to enhance Guix such that
  RPCs can be made over SSH, so that explicit logging on to a management
  machine is no longer necessary.

We should see exactly how much support is needed.

Is ‘socat’ enough, as suggested in
That means there would be no authentication, but maybe that’s acceptable
in a cluster that is isolated on its own LAN anyway.

Option #2 would be to augment (guix store) and guix-daemon so that there
is built-in support for TCP sockets, which would be slightly more

Option #3 would be to make (guix store) SSH-capable, with Guile-SSH.
But it sounds like SSH would incur relatively high latency when
connecting to the daemon.

There remains the problem that /var/guix/profiles/per-user/$USER would
have to be writable to this to be useful.
