Good and interesting idea, if you have the money.
I prefer to work on snippets and instructions, deploying more servers
than necessary isn't an option for myself at the moment.

Mantioning mailman and GuixSD: We'd first need to get all of Mailman
packaged. 2/3 parts are still missing, I have started to work on hyperkitty
but if you are interested and willing to continue it would be nice.

Afterwards we would need a system service, and then it would be good
to try this out in the wild (or intranet) to see what can be done to
run this service (and all connected ones) in a container.
