The concern I have is something the author brings up in the README:

"Compared to LXC, pflask is easier to use since it doesn't require any
pre-configuration (all the options can be passed via the
command-line). pflask is mostly intended for testing, building and
experimenting, whereas LXC is a more complete solution, better suited
for production environments."

I want something that can handle production environments.  But it's a
good starting point anyway.  Using an improved version of the
guix-daemon to do this might still be the best long term solution.

Didn't know about the 'build' subcommand.  I will try that out.
