Hello Efraim,

Like I wrote before, I like the tone and how the post addresses the
topic.  So I just have minor cosmetic suggestions, and then I guess you
can push to guix-artwork.git and we can put it on-line maybe tomorrow?

Please make sure to write `linux-libre` (with backquotes) for all the
identifiers, file names, and commands that appears in the post, notably
all the CONFIG_* identifiers.

Perhaps you can also link to

Can this one be rewritten using the ‘inherit’ idiom that was discussed?
If not, that’s probably OK since you explicitly write that this is not
the recommended approach.

Thanks for your work!
