I have tried it but my setup is way too variable to allow me to compare
performance changes.  For “guix build bwa” when “bwa” has already been
built I get waiting times between 6 and 42 seconds.  Any improvement
would disappear in this terribly wide range.

I will soon have access to a new NFS share on a separate server and with
disabled read timestamps, which I hope will be more reliable.
