The patch to enable as a default substitute server
is available in [1].


I've created a wip-bordeaux branch [2] now which includes that patch,
plus a commit to update the guix package to build guix including it. I
think this will be helpful when testing the changes.


I've also drafted a blog post, which can be found here [3].


If I can find the time to test things this week, maybe the changes in
#48435 can be merged on Friday. If anyone is up for testing things, or
reading through the blog post, that would be great.
