Working on network-manager-l2tp

Hey guix,

Seeing as a lot of people might be working from home at the moment, it
seems a good moment to look at issues that might prevent us from using
guix for that exact purpose. Right now, I can not connect to my company
vpn, which make several processes much more difficult than they need to

The issue with network-manager-l2tp is that because of licensing
incompatibilities, version built with OpenSSL < 3.0 cannot be
redistributed in binary form. As people informed me previously at [1],
it seems that it is currently not possible to prevent the distribution
of substitutes using guix.

I still would like to get network-manager-l2tp packaged, as well as make
a simple service definition available. A hack that would allow us to
truly disable substitutions of certain store paths is a
solution. Another option is to simply wait until OpenSSL 3.0 is
released, although this might still take until Q4 of 2020 [3].

Any ideas?
