Yeah, the substitutes not working made my demo of installing emacs on
my Debian machine with Guix fail.  The other problem was my own,
because I forgot to authorize in the VM image I was
showing off.  I guess it didn't matter in the end, because substitutes
weren't working at all.  I was at least able to show them an
operating-system definition, create a VM image from it, and boot it
with qemu.

Yeah, they're really basic, but I can commit them to guix-maintenance
for good measure.  Do I have commit access to that repo since I'm in
the guix group on savannah?

It was a lot of fun!
