Damn it, I didn’t know you had done that while we were there, kudos!

Yup, this is really promising, looks like you’re getting there!  As
discussed at the Greek restaurant, it’d be nice to see how much of the
job Laminar runs can be turned into (guix …) modules, though that can
come later.

Anyway, as this is shaping up, let us know if you need input on the
remaining bits, like using the channel API to extract information about
the new branch, or fiddling with Cuirass.
