Stow is definitely still useful. I'm aware of two universities that use
it internally for package management on large numbers of POSIX-ish
systems, and I maintain a GNU/Linux distribution that uses it for
package management (GARStow, which was the basis for GSRC).

Something like Guix is the right way to go if you're designing a new
system from scratch, but Stow is very effective for simple package
management inside an existing system.
