Wow, now I want to keep guix up-to-date all the time. How long has it
been since you pulled/upgraded guix?

The first thing I thought of is manually remove the guix binary run
install script. But that might get complicated.

I think you can look at the git repo on savannah and pull a few commits
after your current commit (run "guix describe" to get the commit, then
"guix pull --commit=COMMIT" where COMMIT is about a hundred commits
after your current commit), repeating until "guix pull" brings guix
fully up-to-date.
