Helping everyone be more efficient with the tools we normally use would
be great. I for one find emacs daunting, but even just getting the hang
of opening it up, using debbugs and some simple tasks without needing to
click on the toolbar on top would be good.

Other things to hack on that I've thought about were EFI/u-boot support
and combining QEMU and guix offload.
