Thank you, I am currently cloning your git repo and reading your TODOs, it's a 
big work you've already done, thank you!
I may ask you for some details when I finish looking through all your 
Remember that I'm a beginner on Guix, and haven't much free time to devote 
myself to it, so it's possible the operation may take some time.
