>      pros: better HTTP latency and bandwidth
>      pros: allows us to add a Content-Length for nars
>      pros: helps keep narinfo/nar lifetime in sync
>      cons: doesn’t reduce load on hydra.gnu.org
>      cons: exposes inconsistency between the store contents and the HTTP
>            response (you may get 404 even if the thing is actually in
>            store), but maybe that’s not a problem

Implemented in commit 00753f7038234a0f5a79be3ec9ab949840a18743.

I’ll set up a test instance shortly.
