That would probably work.  My understanding is that because we cannot
install Guix from an existing release binary, somebody will need to
manually build Guix on that machine first, for offloading to work.

OK!  I was planning to add some commits to update the docs, anyway.  I
can do those two tasks.

Additionally, I plan to finally merge wip-ppc64le-for-master to master
