Warn or Error "guix time-machine" before July 2018

Trying old Python 3.6, I just checked the old commit with “git log” and
run the command:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
guix time-machine --commit=ce35dc84a1 \
    -- environment -C --ad-hoc python -- python --version
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

which after burning some CPU fails!

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

Well, it is expected because the commit is from March 2018 so before the
big overhaul and all.  But it is annoying to hit it, especially if there
is some verification / authentication when “Updating channel”.

Does it make to add an error if the commit is not reachable for “guix

All the best,
