OK! I think I now see the technical difficulties in implementing a
useful, offloaded interrupted build: the build artifacts, even if copied
locally, would require syncing all the build time dependencies in order
to allow sourcing the "environment-variables" script and be able to
debug. That's more the job of 'guix publish', not of 'guix offload'.
