GuixSD on PXE (was: Do we really need our own installer?)

Should we really have instructions to do so?

There are two possibilities:

- One uses GuixSD with PXE to access his own computer. No services like
  "Internet caffe" or "thin clients" are provided *to* third-parties.

- Someone decides to use GuixSD in PXE to provide the services described
  in the previous item.

One option would also involve discouraging the second item, with a link
to the address given in the next paragraph.
