I took the liberty of rebasing wip-postfix on latest master and

Luckily, that was easily fixed by updating postfix to 3.5.0.

I found we already have mail-aliases-service-type, so I used that,
together with running postalias.  Now, queuing mail works ootb...but
delivery seems not to work: it remains queued.

I rebased wip-postfix and added a couple of patches for this.  Please
feel free to revert them if you don't like it :-)

When starting postfix like so

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
./pre-inst-env guix system vm gnu/system/examples/postfix.tmpl`\
   --nographic -m 1G\
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I'm seeing

Ok => TODO :-)

Any insight here, something blocking maybe?
