This is awesome!  I really wanted such a feature back when I was
poking around with a 'guix deploy' prototype.  Now I could use the
Scheme API to 'guix copy' to build an OS on my workstation, then ship
it to one or more remote machines and use guile-ssh to run the code to
instantiate it.  Exciting!
