It turned out that the code to start a REPL server in (ssh dist node)
would currently hang, as I wrote in the bug report above.

After investigation, I decided that inferiors are more appropriate than
Guile-SSH’s node to address this use case, after all.  Commit
ed7b44370f71126087eb953f36aad8dc4c44109f changes ‘guix offload’ to

As a result, build machines must now run Guix > 0.15.0, which provides
‘guix repl’.  That in turn simplifies setup of build machines: no need
to fiddle with GUILE_LOAD_PATH.

On berlin, build machines were running an older Guix so I copied a
recently pulled Guix on each of them and installed it in
~/.config/guix/current.  They’re now operational, except for the ARMv7
one which is still pulling.  So far it seems to be working well but
we’ll have to keep an eye on it.
