The `guix system build/reconfigure` upgrades the daemon first. Right?
So, if `guix` cannot know beforehand will the User get any substitutes..
* `guix` should stop and ask in case there is a build ahead?

With `update-daemon-only`, one can just walk away. Then look-up, if any
builds are ahead. Of course i understood that the system-wide config
should be keept minimal. So not that big trouble: just i had an
substitute offered to me (for kernel), but (as `system build -n` didn't
warned me) decided to not use it (as i thought the kernel will not be
updated). When i found out that kernel actually going to be build, i
canceled it. Then switched to kernel that has substitute (same config,
Thank You for the attention, Vitaliy.
