I don't really understand the point of this back-and-forth.  It's
quite simple: If the user builds the same package expression with the
same version of Guix, they will get the same result if the build is
deterministic.  I don't understand the contrast with Snappy and
Flatpak because they don't provide this feature at all, opting instead
to provide opaque binaries with no real provenance.  I can only assume
that there is some fundamental misunderstanding about Guix going on
