That is a very good idea. I think, however, the demand will be much
higher for a 'GNU Guix' book which teaches scheme implicitly. It will
also make GNU Guix a first rate item in the shop. Grow a Scheme on
Guix ;)

I am happy to contribute a chapter on 'GNU Guix for science' and
perhaps a chapter on 'Writing software using Guix containers'.

Both topics make my daily work a joy :). Can't do without it.
