This does open some interesting possibilities, such as experts defining
personalized system configurations which are then easy to install for
anyone. Although I am not terribly fond of the idea of typing URLs into
an installer.

The bigger issue is config.scm - again unrestricted Guile code, like
manifests. That's not good for publishing because we shouldn't encourage
anyone to run unrestricted code from untrusted sources.
